// into which ProfileEntries can be put.  It may return NULL if no
// empty buffers can be found, which will be the case if the unwinder
// thread(s) have fallen behind for some reason.  In this case the
// sampled thread must simply give up and return from the signal
// handler immediately, else it risks deadlock.

// If the calling thread has not previously registered itself for
// profiling via uwt__register_thread_for_profiling, this routine
// returns NULL.

// that the sampled thread has acquired, handing the contents to
// the unwinder thread, and, if necessary, passing sufficient
// information (stack top chunk, + registers) to also do a native
// unwind.  If 'ucV' is NULL, no native unwind is done.  If non-NULL,
// it is assumed to point to a ucontext_t* that holds the initial 
// register state for the unwind.  The results of all of this are
// dumped into |aProfile| (by the unwinder thread, not the calling thread).
