In theory it should "just work" assuming arm32 as native arch works.
Normally elfutils/libdwfl uses the backend that matches the ELF
header/EM value used. The only issue is that for arm32 only .debug_frame
is supported and not EXIDX tables (as .eh_frame isn't used on arm32).
But I believe that isn't an issue in your case because you require the
debuginfo to be available.

If you were using the mjw/aarch64-unwind branch you might have missed
various patches for arm32 support since that branch was fairly old. I
have rebased the branch on current master now.

The system I am testing on is missing various glibc fixes, in particular and gcc doesn't
use -fasynchronous-unwind-tables by default. So the make check results
are not reliable for me.

If you can run make check on the rebased branch on your setup that would
be helpful. Ideally all tests PASS. If not, the output of
tests/test-suite.log would be interesting.
