I.e., you could write an assembly function which uses a non-standard frame layout, but do *not* describe that layout via .eh_frame. Then, stop in that function and try to step out...

Thanks, will look into this.

Here's how I checked:

  (lldb) fin
   SynthesizeTailCallFrames: can't find previous function
   Return address (0x22) did not point to executable memory.
   Discarding thread plans for thread tid = 0x1bd7b6, up to 0x7fe2f165a220
  error: Could not create return address breakpoint.
  (lldb) image list -a 0x22
  error: Couldn't find module containing address: 0x22.

  $ vmmap 94213 0x22
  0x22 is not in any region.  Bytes before following region: 4294967262
