[UPDATED PATCH] Fix check for valid stack pointer during backtrace

Subject: [UPDATED PATCH] Fix check for valid stack pointer during backtrace

The newly added check for valid stack pointer address breaks at least for
64bit kernels.  Use __get_user() for accessing stack content to avoid crashes,
when doing the backtrace.
