Hmm, on x86_64 it looks like this:

save_stack_trace+0x16/0x20
save_stack+0x43/0xe0
__set_page_owner+0x24/0x50

So after your patch there's still __set_page_owner. Seems x86 needs
something similar to your arm64 patch 1/2?

The patch itself improves the output regardless of whether we fix the
x86 internals, so:
