Do we want the return here?  It means that...

...we skip this handling in the case where we're not in kernel code.  I
don't know off hand if that's a case that can happen right now but it
seems more robust to run through this and anything else we add later,
even if it's not relevant now changes either in the unwinder itself or
resulting from some future work elsewhere may mean it later becomes
important.  Skipping futher reliability checks is obviously fine if
we've already decided things aren't reliable but this is more than just
a reliability check.
