An updated version of the libunwind patch for the 2.6-kernel is now
available at:


The only change is that the libunwind API has been exported to
modules.  The problem I reported earlier with strace'ing an x86 task
apparently had nothing to do with the libunwind changes as it went
away before I even had a chance to investigate.

This patch passes all my testing so far.  The only thing that I
haven't tested (at all) is the oprofile call-stack tracing.  I'd be
interested to hear if/how that works.  (I did drop the old compiler
support there --- I hope nobody uses such old compilers anymore and
the code was just gross; but if we have to, we can resurrect it).

Tony, I know you're in the middle of making the test-2.6 tree work
better for you.  For now, the patch above is relative to Linus 2.6
tree, but if you have no objections, I'd like to feed it into your
test-2.6 as soon as possible (just let me know when you're ready and I
will respin the patch relative to test-2.6).
