All this _Unwind_foo and __gxx_personality_sj0 stuff is required for
exception handling, which basically requires a working libstdc++ (which
we don't have).  So the only chance is to run the compiler with
-fno-exceptions -- which will also reduce my simple test file to < 500
bytes of flash, which is quite a bit closer to what i would expect. ;)
