you plan to support DW_OP_* as pseudoinstructions for gas(1)? That would be
great. Sure I could code it into the `.eh_frame' section by hand but that's
ugly and currently this bug is not a stopper, signal frame unwinding came just
as logical related bugfix.
If it is a part of your planned CFI GCC extension it could be soon.
I'll try to propose something if the implementation would take too long.

As missing CFI is not a showstopper I chose the better code readability.
OK, you would like more the commented numbers.

I see now, thanks for the suggestion.

OK, thanks for pointing me this way is right.
* I believed these glibc parts are tightly bound to the kernel to accept
such ABI compatibility interdependencies.
* I missed gas(1) .cfi_* pseudoinstructions for the *_expression types.
