This patch adds the ability to generate stack traces on crashes for Windows.
When running in the interpreter this attempts to use symbol information from
the interpreter and information we know about the loaded object files to
resolve addresses to symbols.
When running compiled it doesn't have this information and then defaults
to using symbol information from PDB files. Which for now means only
files compiled with ICC or MSVC will show traces compiled.
But I have a future patch that may address this shortcoming.
Also since I don't know how to walk a pure haskell stack, I can for now
only show the last entry. I'm hoping to figure out how Apply.cmm works to
be able to walk the stalk and give more entries for pure haskell code.
