Btw, I was triggered by Conrad's comment in contrib/llvm-project/compiler-rt/lib/builtins/gcc_personality_v0.c (added in

 * XXX On FreeBSD, this file is compiled into three libraries:
 *   - libcompiler_rt
 *   - libgcc_eh
 *   - libgcc_s
 * In the former, the include path points to the contrib/libcxxrt/unwind-arm.h
 * copy of unwind.h.  In the latter, the include path points to the
 * contrib/libunwind/include/unwind.h header (LLVM libunwind).
 * Neither (seemingly redundant) variant of unwind.h needs the redefinitions
 * provided in the "helpful" header below, and libcxxrt's unwind-arm.h provides
 * *no* useful distinguishing macros, so just forcibly disable the helper
 * header on FreeBSD.

So at least there is no more inconsistency now! Whether commit c8b5e3de39bcf can be reverted is another matter, though.
