// This file implements the support code for the out of bounds signal handler.
// Nothing in here actually runs in the signal handler, but the code here
// manipulates data structures used by the signal handler so we still need to be
// careful. In order to minimize this risk, here are some rules to follow.
// 1. Avoid introducing new external dependencies. The files in src/trap-handler
// should be as self-contained as possible to make it easy to audit the code.
// 2. Any changes must be reviewed by someone from the crash reporting
// or security team. Se OWNERS for suggested reviewers.
// For more information, see
// For the code that runs in the signal handler itself, see
#include <signal.h>
