I got these separately. I assume they are as in the email you sent on
Mon, 10 Apr 2017 14:48:06 +0200 (which didn't hit the list because it
had the binaries attached...)

I'll but them on my mjw/fp-unwind branch (which I am rewriting
currently, not pushed yet).

This description doesn't seem to match anymore. Should this be:

# The binary is generated by compiling with eh_frame CFI, but with frame
# pointers.
# gcc -static -O2 -fno-omit-frame-pointer -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables \
#     -D_GNU_SOURCE -pthread -o tests/backtrace.x86_64.fp.exec -I. -Ilib \
#     tests/backtrace-child.c
# The core is generated by calling the binary with --gencore
