Rename *.c to *.cpp to generate unwind tables for these functions.

Authored by logan on Jan 17 2015, 12:11 AM.



If we compile these *.c files with arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc, gcc won't
generate the unwind table by default. As the result, the _Unwind_Backtrace
can't unwind through itself.

This change fix the problem by renaming *.c to *.cpp.

(p.s. This is the 5/6 patch to fix the backtrace_test and libgcc support.)

It used to always generate the EHABI tables, even in C mode, so I'm surprised it doesn't any more.

Nevertheless, I think we better use a flag to emit the tables rather than change the language, as C++isms could creep in and we want this code as simple as possible.

We had a flag for it at one point. How are you building this, @logan... cmake, or buildit?

I am using cmake and clang 3.5.

An alternative solution is to add -funwind-tables to CFLAGS.

I guess that it is due to the fact that these C functions are considered as nothrow.

Yeah, I think it would be best to add -funwind-tables (back?) to the CFLAGS.

OK. Please refer to D7099 for the -funwind-tables change instead.
