The bug only manifests itself when one particular SGI patch is applied
to the kernel.  When one particular object from that patch is linked
into the kernel then it trips the unwind glitch.  My problem is that
the code looks fine, and so does the unwind data in its object.  Still
digging, valid C code should not be able to do this to ld :(.
