Help more if we could print both register and stack info.

I think this code already prints as much as it can in all cases.

The arch/arm implementation of show_regs() calls dump_stack() internally so the first case does show register and stack info.

In the second case, where regs is NULL because we have been called directly from task context, there aren't any saved regs for us to show.
