The old code has a "return 0 in the case that "cpu != ~0", so this
basically matches the prior behavior in restoring the current task for
a "btc" but not leaving the current task changed in the case of "btc
<cpu>".  Thus my patch doesn't actually change the existing behavior,
but I guess that it does make the control flow simpler so it's easier
to understand what the behavior is.  ;-)

Reading through other control flows of the various backtrace commands,
it looks like it is intentional to leave the current task changed when
you explicitly do an action on that task (or a CPU).

Actually, though, it wasn't clear to me that it ever made sense for
any of these commands to implicitly leave the current task changed.
If you agree, I can send a follow-up patch to change this behavior.
