Please figure it out and be sure.  You need it only if there are existing
old C++ binaries that have references to _Unwind_Find_FDE.  If there are no
C++ binaries you want to be compatible with that predate a certain GCC
version (not sure which off hand), then you don't need it.  But I don't
think it hurts to have it.

This log entry is for a generated file, and there is no log entry for the
actual source file.
