Subject: [PATCH] parisc,metag: Implement CONFIG_DEBUG_STACK_USAGE option
Date: Sat, 19 Mar 2016 17:54:10 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

On parisc and metag the stack grows upwards, so for those we need to
scan the stack downwards in order to calculate how much stack a process
has used.

Tested on a 64bit parisc kernel.
