The call site table allows us to call setjmp just and handle any
exception within the function.  The previous implementation had
to call setjmp many times, which bloated the code quite a bit.

Well then use <stdlib.h> instead.

Err, if you didn't call _Unwind_RaiseException, you didn't throw
an exception at all.
