I do keep forgetting about libjava but I just looked and I don't see a
use of _URC_FOREIGN_EXCEPTION in it anywhere so I don't think I have to
change anything there for the _URC_NO_REASON problem.  The _Unwind_SetIP
part may require libjava work.

No, void* would just be SImode (in ILP32 mode) when passed and would not
be expanded.

I am experimenting with the idea of the following change in unwind.h:

	#if defined(__ia64__) && defined(__hpux__)
	typedef unsigned _Unwind_Ptr __attribute__((__mode__(__word__)));
	typedef unsigned _Unwind_Ptr __attribute__((__mode__(__pointer__)));

The other changes that would be needed to make this work would be to
modify catchTemp in the __cxa_exception in cxx-unwind.h to be
_Unwind_Ptr instead of void* and get rid of the void* casts when
assigning to catchTemp.  Does this look like a better approach?  I am
still testing it to see if it actually works.  This might also make
libjava changes unnecessary since the Java LSDA uses _Unwind_Ptr's in
its LSDA but I don't see any void* types like catchTemp in the Java
