Well, I have to trust you on this.  No time to dive into all these details.

It's also a runtime issue.  We can certainly require a fixed libgcc_s
with support for the external libunwind at compile time.  But it'll be a
while until things are fixed correctly everywhere.

Jakub will know better how to handle the gcc side.  I'll defer to him
providing such a gcc.  If it works and is acceptable, we can look at
transitioning over to it.
