Hi Bruce, thank you for the detailed response.

Oh, interesting. Do you know off hand if it's resolved in later GCC?

It seems particularly unfortunate for the compiler to report (by
whatever mechanism) that a builtin exists, and then just turn that
builtin into a library call.

Most likely I'll switch to the asm versions across suitable
architectures in a subsequent change, mirroring the choices made in
libm.  I just wanted to get a version in, to enable further testing
(ports exp-runs, etc.) of this libunwind / compiler-rt combination.

[Details about specific groups of functions omitted -- I'll try to
take a look at these later.]

Yes, these libcompiler_rt.a issues seem rather surprising to me, but
presumably they aren't causing much of an issue in practice in the
static lib. In any case, my hope is that once I try disentangling
these libraries I can take a look at these issues across the set of
libraries (libcompiler_rt.a aka libgcc.a, libgcc_eh.a, libgcc_s.so).
