ah, managed to reproduce it!

Jan, the dwarf2 unwinder apparently fails if we call a NULL function.
The patch below will provoke it artificially on any box (as long as you
have an IDE system). I've attached the incorrect backtrace attempt
below, and the expected backtrace further below.

the relevant config options are:

CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y
CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER=y
CONFIG_UNWIND_INFO=y
CONFIG_STACK_UNWIND=y
