Actually, I'd like to have CNI functions mangled in C++ style. This is
how they are written in the source code (think copy/search/paste), and it
can help to make it very obvious when the stack trace goes through native
code. Also, this is consistent with GDB.

How about we display the pc in the case where line numbers arn't
available? This should be easy to determine if we use libbfd.so directly,
with the existing addr2line code as a fallback if bfd isn't available.
Hmm... hopefully bfd is threadsafe?
