x86/unwind/orc: Fix unwind_get_return_address_ptr() for inactive tasks

Normally, show_trace_log_lvl() scans the stack, looking for text
addresses to print. In parallel, it unwinds the stack with
unwind_next_frame(). If the stack address matches the pointer returned
by unwind_get_return_address_ptr() for the current frame, the text
address is printed normally without a question mark. Otherwise it's
considered a breadcrumb (potentially from a previous call path) and it's
printed with a question mark to indicate that the address is unreliable
and typically can be ignored.

Since the following commit:

f1d9a2abff66 ("x86/unwind/orc: Don't skip the first frame for inactive tasks")

... for inactive tasks, show_trace_log_lvl() prints *only* unreliable
addresses (prepended with '?').

That happens because, for the first frame of an inactive task,
unwind_get_return_address_ptr() returns the wrong return address
pointer: one word *below* the task stack pointer. show_trace_log_lvl()
starts scanning at the stack pointer itself, so it never finds the first
'reliable' address, causing only guesses to being printed.

The first frame of an inactive task isn't a normal stack frame. It's
actually just an instance of 'struct inactive_task_frame' which is left
behind by __switch_to_asm(). Now that this inactive frame is actually
exposed to callers, fix unwind_get_return_address_ptr() to interpret it
properly.
