SubjectRe: crash binary for latest unreleased kernel
I happen to look at the patches for the crash binary and came across
this log entry from Jan 19. I am also using 4.15-rc kernel. Not
knowing anything about crash it is hard to even attempt to fix it.

Initial pass for support of kernel page table isolation. The x86_64

"bt" command may indicate "bt: cannot transition from exception stack
to current process stack" if the crash callback NMI occurred while an
active task was running on the new entry trampoline stack. This has
only been tested on the RHEL7 backport of the upstream patch because
as of this commit, crash does not run on 4.15-rc kernels. Further
changes may be required for upstream kernels, and distributions that
implement the kernel changes differently than upstream.
