// GDB has two ways of interacting with JIT code. With the "JIT compilation
// interface", V8 can tell GDB when it emits JIT code. Unfortunately to do so,
// it has to create platform-native object files, possibly with platform-native
// debugging information. Currently only ELF and Mach-O are supported, which
// limits this interface to Linux and Mac OS. This JIT compilation interface
// was introduced in GDB 7.0. V8 support can be enabled with the --gdbjit flag.
// The other way that GDB can know about V8 code is via the "custom JIT reader"
// interface, in which a GDB extension parses V8's private data to determine the
// function, file, and line of a JIT frame, and how to unwind those frames.
// This interface was introduced in GDB 7.6. This interface still relies on V8
// to register its code via the JIT compilation interface, but doesn't require
// that V8 create ELF images. Support will be added for this interface in the
// future.
