Hmm, I remember we drop DEBUG statements after calls that throw
to be able to split the BB at the appropriate point.  Do we?

I guess as they are fake edges and only profiling uses it (but it's
a CFG hook also implemented on RTL ... huh...) it probably doesn't matter.

So, the patch is ok.  It would be nice to make this localized though
and remove the hookization of this functionality.
