That won't work.

_Unwind_FindEnclosingFunction is trivial:

void *
_Unwind_FindEnclosingFunction (void *pc)
  struct dwarf_eh_bases bases;
  const struct dwarf_fde *fde = _Unwind_Find_FDE (pc-1, &bases);
  if (fde)
    return bases.func;
    return NULL;

_Unwind_Find_FDE is a standard function.  Does Darwin support that?
