In the past there have been suggestions that a good approach would be to
target the libunwind (http://www.nongnu.org/libunwind/) library
interface in a lowering pass. This could provide both low "availability"
overhead and low "use" overhead.
If libunwind had setjmp/longjmp implementations for your platform (I
think they're currently only available in IA64), then it would be
trivial to use a setjmp/longjmp lowering pass and get what you want.
I keep wanting to do this but it always seems to get bumped off of my
