It is limited to gcc >=5, gcc-4.9 does not have the

Attached, the test is running on gcc trunk and gcc-6. gcc-6 is the last 
one with java support and there we have quite extensive test cases which 
really test for this MD_FALLBACK_FRAME_STATE_FOR macro. These test 
cases, Throw_2 and co do pass. So I think the new bits should be fine.
Also some coming asan test cases do pass with this addition too.
