Yeah we need something like this. I prefer mine though ;) It shows
registers as well as stack...

It prints just a single CPU at a time, but cycles through each one.
An alternative might be to have one sysrq key used to cycle between
CPUs, and sysrq+P could then just print out a trace from the selected
CPU...
