Perhaps not _Unwind_GetGR in gcc directly, but it is an ABI
specified interface.  We do use _Unwind_SetGR in gcc source.

Not for extension of an integer, surely.

I wouldn't expect so.  That was one of the reasons that I
checked only specific sizeof's, and didn't use read_[248],
which would fall back to unaligned loads (which fall back
to byte-by-byte loads).

I would expect the difference on x86 to be

	cmpl	$4, mem
	jne	to_abort

which should be non-measurable.
