Thanks, these dumps are more "normal":

- The first shows a missing frame pointer setup in
atomic64_add_unless_cx8().

- The second shows some frame pointer related issue in the kthread
creation path.

I don't plan on fixing those, because we don't yet have objtool support
for 32-bit and we don't have anything which needs reliable stack traces
there. I'll probably just disable those unwinder dumps on 32-bit.
