I already talked about this with Richard, who objected against supporting
__frame_state_for in libgcc_s. The end of discussion was basically that
libgcc_s should export fde *_Unwind_Find_Fde(void *pc) which glibc could use
to implement __frame_state_for (using frame-dwarf2.c cleaned up for
inclusion in glibc) - at least as I understood the BASES argument will not
be needed on the platforms which need __frame_state_for exported from glibc
(ie. alpha/s390/arm/i386/m68k/mips/ppc/sparc32/sparc64 linux and i386 hurd).
This would mean glibc would have to use as either DT_FILTER or
DT_AUXILIARY (if DT_AUXILIARY, it would have to provide some
_Unwind_Find_Fde implementation itself, either by being built with
-static-libgcc and exporting symbols exported by libgcc_s, or just providing
full frame.c+frame-dwarf2.c implementation with the find_fde with exported
_Unwind_Find_Fde alias).
