[Bug runtime/14107] Bad user unwinding from kernel fatal signal handler for some x86_64 kernels

--- Comment #4 from Mark Wielaard <mjw at redhat dot com> 2012-05-15 14:07:27 UTC ---
The problem isn't the CFI for do_page_fault, but that there is no CFI for
page_fault. Nor does there seem to be any CFI for any assembly symbol defined
in entry_64.S. Which explains why unwinding to the kernel/user space barrier
just fails.

No idea yet, why the CFI isn't included in /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/*/vmlinux
for the RHEL6 kernel, it certainly is there in entry_64.S source code. And it
also is in the fedora version
$ eu-readelf --debug-dump=frames
/usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/3.3.5-2.fc16.x86_64/vmlinux | grep -B2 -A1
