This looks worthwhile, but this patch duplicates the same check in
many places, making the code harder to read and maintain than
necessary. It would be a good opportunity for a bit of refactoring,
since we've already tried to fix these backtrace overrun issues
at least once in the past (not 100% successfully ...)


Really, there is a single common check needed: every time we want to
read a word from the stack, we need to check that word is within
the proper stack bounds before doing the read.


At the start of the backtrace, we should determine the thread stack
bounds for the thread. Those bounds should be fixed for the whole
backtrace; it makes sense to store them in the unwind_ctrl_block
structure, so that called functions can see them.

Then a helper can be written that does the correct bounds check and
reads a word from the stack, using the current frame's base virtual
SP and the thread stack bounds.

Then we just need to use that helper whenever we want to read a
word from the stack.

Cheers
