        I'm not quite sure I understand the difference.  I'm away from my
references right now, but isn't the stack pointer defined to be r12?  (At
least, during normal operation, but that's precisely what I'm supposed to
be describing with the unwind information, right?)  Or is this distinction
more for the benefit of libunwind?
