I am following up on an earlier conversation here with respect to jit
stack traces. Any thing changed here with respect to latest llvm

*>>* Hey guys,
*>>* In our project we have the following workflow:
*>>* - Given a user request, we construct a C++ program to service the request
*>* - We create a compiler invocation to compile that program into an IR module
*>* - We use JIT (and optionally MCJIT) to convert the IR into executable code
*>* and run it

*>>* However, that does not work for a production crash. We want to capture the
*>* stack trace from the crash and write it to stderr. Our binary has a signal
*>* handler that does stack unwinding and symbolization upon crash. Based on my
*>* reading so far, we need to implement a JITEventListener which would keep
*>* track of the dynamically generated symbol addresses and use the resulting
*>* maps for symbolization.
*>>* Will that work? Is there a simpler way?
*>>* Thanks,
