SubjectRe: [PATCH 08/13] x86/dumpstack: When OOPSing, rewind the stack before do_exit

I think this should be:

leaq -TOP_OF_KERNEL_STACK_PADDING-SIZEOF_PTREGS, %rsp

That way when it calls do_exit(), the stack frame will be placed at the
conventional spot where a smart unwinder would expect to find it.
