/// \brief Crash recovery helper object.
/// This class implements support for running operations in a safe context so
/// that crashes (memory errors, stack overflow, assertion violations) can be
/// detected and control restored to the crashing thread. Crash detection is
/// purely "best effort", the exact set of failures which can be recovered from
/// is platform dependent.
/// Clients make use of this code by first calling
/// CrashRecoveryContext::Enable(), and then executing unsafe operations via a
/// CrashRecoveryContext object. For example:
///    void actual_work(void *);
///    void foo() {
///      CrashRecoveryContext CRC;
///      if (!CRC.RunSafely(actual_work, 0)) {
///         ... a crash was detected, report error to user ...
///      }
///      ... no crash was detected ...
///    }
/// Crash recovery contexts may not be nested.

  /// thread which is in a protected context.

  /// \brief Execute the provide callback function (with the given arguments) in
  /// a protected context.
  /// \return True if the function completed successfully, and false if the
  /// function crashed (or HandleCrash was called explicitly). Clients should
  /// make as little assumptions as possible about the program state when
  /// RunSafely has returned false. Clients can use getBacktrace() to retrieve
  /// the backtrace of the crash on failures.

  /// \brief Explicitly trigger a crash recovery in the current process, and
  /// return failure from RunSafely(). This function does not return.

  /// \brief Return a string containing the backtrace where the crash was
  /// detected; or empty if the backtrace wasn't recovered.
  /// This function is only valid when a crash has been detected (i.e.,
  /// RunSafely() has returned false.
