Looking at one of the dumps:

It should have at least printed the #DF iret frame registers, which I
recently added support for in "x86/unwinder: Handle stack overflows more
gracefully", which is in both 4.14.9 and 4.15-rc5.

I think the missing iret regs are due to a bug in show_trace_log_lvl(),
where if the unwind starts with two regs frames in a row, the second
regs don't get printed.

Alexander, would you mind reproducing again with the below patch? It
should still fail, but this time it should hopefully show another
RIP/RSP/EFLAGS instead of the "do_double_fault+0xb/0x140" line.
