 Firefox is getting compiled with `panic=abort` (https://dxr.mozilla.org
 /mozilla-central/source/testing/geckodriver/.cargo/config) for 32bit
 Windows and we intend to create a Rustc compiler with that panic strategy
 as well, given that cross-compiling with `panic=unwind` is not working
 (see: comment:1:ticket:25894).

 While compiling every crate in the std lib with `panic-abort` is working
 it seems we still miss some crucial bit here.

 One option to test would be if we can get rid of `panic_unwind` if we
 don't need it anyway when compiling for 32bit Windows. For what it is
 worth, the compiler as we have it right now is working for `tor` compiled
 with Rust.
