[PATCH] dumpstack: handle NULL stack pointer in show_trace_log_lvl()

From: Josh Poimboeuf
Date: Thu Nov 17 2016 - 01:05:49 EST

When show_trace_log_lvl() is called from show_regs(), it completely
fails to dump the stack. This bug was introduced when
show_stack_log_lvl() was removed with the following commit:

0ee1dd9f5e7e ("x86/dumpstack: Remove raw stack dump")

Previous callers of that function now call show_trace_log_lvl()
directly. That resulted in a subtle change, in that the 'stack'
argument can now be NULL in certain cases.

A NULL 'stack' pointer means that the stack dump should start from the
topmost stack frame unless 'regs' is valid, in which case it should
start from 'regs->sp'.

Fixes: 0ee1dd9f5e7e ("x86/dumpstack: Remove raw stack dump")
