Subject[RFC PATCH v2 05/18] sched: add task flag for preempt IRQ tracking
Date
A preempted function might not have had a chance to save the frame
pointer to the stack yet, which can result in its caller getting skipped
on a stack trace.

Add a flag to indicate when the task has been preempted so that stack
dump code can determine whether the stack trace is reliable.
