While porting libunwind over to CloudABI for ARMv6, I observed that this
source file doesn't build, as it depends on dl_unwind_find_exidx(),
which CloudABI's C library was lacking. After I added that function,
I still needed to patch up libunwind to define _Unwind_Ptr.
Taking a step back, I wonder why we need to make use of this function
anyway. The unwinder already has some nice code to use dl_iterate_phdr()
to scan for a PT_GNU_EH_FRAME header. The dl_unwind_find_exidx() does
the same thing, except matching PT_ARM_EXIDX instead. We could also do
This change gets rid of the dl_unwind_find_exidx() call and extends the
dl_iterate_phdr() loop. In addition to making the code a bit shorter, it
has the advantage of getting rid of some of those OS-specific #ifdefs.
This now means that if an operating system only provides
dl_iterate_phdr(), it gets support for unwinding on all architectures.
There is no need to add more stuff, just to get ARMv6 support.
