This set introduces a new helper bpf_get_task_stack(). The primary use case
is to dump all /proc/*/stack to seq_file via bpf_iter__task.

A few different approaches have been explored and compared:

  1. A simple wrapper around stack_trace_save_tsk(), as v1 [1].

     This approach introduces new syntax, which is different to existing
     helper bpf_get_stack(). Therefore, this is not ideal.

  2. Extend get_perf_callchain() to support "task" as argument.

     This approach reuses most of bpf_get_stack(). However, extending
     get_perf_callchain() requires non-trivial changes to architecture
     specific code. Which is error prone.

  3. Current (v2) approach, leverages most of existing bpf_get_stack(), and
     uses stack_trace_save_tsk() to handle architecture specific logic.

Changes v3 => v4:
1. Simplify the selftests with bpf_iter.h. (Yonghong)
2. Add example output to commit log of 4/4. (Yonghong)

Changes v2 => v3:
1. Rebase on top of bpf-next. (Yonghong)
2. Sanitize get_callchain_entry(). (Peter)
3. Use has_callchain_buf for bpf_get_task_stack. (Andrii)
4. Other small clean up. (Yonghong, Andrii).

Changes v1 => v2:
1. Reuse most of bpf_get_stack() logic. (Andrii)
2. Fix unsigned long vs. u64 mismatch for 32-bit systems. (Yonghong)
3. Add %pB support in bpf_trace_printk(). (Daniel)
4. Fix buffer size to bytes.

  bpf: introduce helper bpf_get_task_stack()
  bpf: allow %pB in bpf_seq_printf() and bpf_trace_printk()
  selftests/bpf: add bpf_iter test with bpf_get_task_stack()
