Subject[PATCH v15 6/6] arm64: Introduce arch_stack_walk_reliable()
Date
From: "Madhavan T. Venkataraman" <madvenka@linux.microsoft.com>

Introduce arch_stack_walk_reliable() for ARM64. This works like
arch_stack_walk() except that it returns -EINVAL if the stack trace is not
reliable.

Until all the reliability checks are in place, arch_stack_walk_reliable()
may not be used by livepatch. But it may be used by debug and test code.
