PaulB mentioned that crash happened at May 26 10:47:07. I am wondering
how are we able to sample the data after the crash. I am assuming
that above data gives information only before crash and does not
tell us anything about what happened just before crash. What am I missing.

PaulM, in one of the mails you had mentioned that one could print
context switch id to make sure we did not block in rcu section. Would
you have quick pointer where is context switch id stored. May be
I can write a small patch for PaulB.

Thanks
Vivek
