I would be happy to change the name of "sysdep/dwarf2-backtrace.cc"
However I don't want to do it if you guys want to go with some other
solution. If you think the approach of using the code currently in
sysdep/dwarf2-backtrace.cc as a starting point it a good one, I will
make the change. If not, do what ever you want, and I will try adapt
the MIPS port as needed.
