During that phase we have to make sure that we call the landing pad if it exists, hence we can't bail early anymore here.
@timonvo: What will happen if `_US_UNWIND_FRAME_RESUME` is passed to this personality function?  I think it should not search for landing pads and install the context.  Am I wrong?  Thanks.
