You can yield from a C hook (lua_sethook), but not from a Lua
hook (debug.sethook) which sits on top of a C frame. That's the
same behavior as plain Lua.

Yes, but LuaJIT 1.x used a different mechanism which involved
creating and switching between multiple C stacks. LuaJIT 2.x uses
a resumable VM, which has many advantages. Alas, a few uncommonly
used yield points no longer work.
