+ * The ORC_REG_* registers are base registers which are used to find other
+ * registers on the stack.
+ *
+ * ORC_REG_PREV_SP, also known as DWARF Call Frame Address (CFA), is the
+ * address of the previous frame: the caller's SP before it called the current
+ * function.
+ *
+ * ORC_REG_UNDEFINED means the corresponding register's value didn't change in
+ * the current frame.
+ *
+ * The most commonly used base registers are SP and BP -- which the previous SP
+ * is usually based on -- and PREV_SP and UNDEFINED -- which the previous BP is
+ * usually based on.
+ *
+ * The rest of the base registers are needed for special cases like entry code
+ * and GCC realigned stacks.
