As I told Peter privately the laptop that triggered the
MAX_STACK_TRACE_ENTRIES every time, has met an
unfortunate early demise. However, I think it was the config - not the
hardware. On this machine where the above
numbers come from, I believe I have less debug options configured -
but it is running the exact same kernel as
the laptop was. (2.6.33.2-rt13)
