struct stack_trace is defined only if CONFIG_STACKTRACE, and,
most call sites seems to be defined only if CONFIG_STACKTRACE.
I guess that removing all of them would works fine, but, dunno. :)

Okay. I will fix overflow problem. And, current implementation doesn't
comply snprint* functions sementic that returns generated string
length rather than printed string length. I will fix it, too.
