[LLVMdev] How to initiate/throw an exception (resume just continues)

I'm trying to add some basic exception handling to my language now and
I'm uncertain of how I actually start the exception propagation. It
appears that "resume" will continue the exception, but I see no mention
of how the exception actually starts.

If I look at the IR output of a simple C++ program I see that it calls
@__cxa_throw, but that is a library function. Somehow I must be able to
initiate the exception in LLVM?
