archdata->unw_* is zero so arch_init_module() flags them as being
outside the object. IMHO this is correct, all modules should have
unwind data, but if it makes sense for a module to have no unwind data
then I need to patch arch_init_module() - David?

I have no idea why your modules are being compiled without unwind data,
that is a separate problem that you might want to take up with the
