I reckon it's worth mentioning *why* we need to do this; how about:

/*
* It's necessary to use libunwind to reliably determine the caller of
* a leaf function on aarch64, as otherwise we cannot know whether to
* start from the LR or FP.
*
* Always starting from the LR can result in duplicate or entirely
* erroneous entries. Always skipping the LR and starting from the FP
* can result in missing entries.
*/

Other than that, this looks fine to me!

Thanks,
Mark.
