I think so, though the assembly isn't really complete enough to tell.
In this case if the .cfi_def_cfa_offset is describing the epilogue it
would mean that all code in what you've labelled _Unwind_Resume
(assuming that's actually a cleanup landing pad or something) will use
the wrong SP to load the saved registers from. The unwinder will think
it's executing directly after the epilogue since it's later on in the
