Hi Madhavan,

Apolgoies for the delay in getting round to this.

I'd prefer if we could decouple ARCH_STACKWALK from STACKTRACE, so that
we don't have to expose /proc/*/stack unconditionally, which Peter
Zijlstra has a patch for:

  https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20211022152104.356586621@infradead.org/

... but regardless the rest of the series looks pretty good, so I'll go
review that, and we can figure out how to queue the bits and pieces in
the right order.

Thanks,
Mark.
