Hi Pilippe

Last time I tried oprofile with call graph on my opteron machine (linux-2.6.13
SMP), the machine crashed instantly in dump_backtrace()

Apparently the user program was in a state were 'struct frame_head * head' was
not part of the user thread stack, but some strange value like
0x8000000000xxyyzz
