If TotalView saves CFA along with explicitly-numbered registers on
DW_CFA_remember_state and restores CFA state in DW_CFA_restore_state, then
it matches what GCC expects and what GCC unwinder does, it is GDB that
wasn't saving/restoring CFA state (and GCC unwinder before 2006-10-26,
but GCC really started emitting these two unwind ops last month).
