BTW, I have synced my patchset to 5.19-rc2 and sent it as v15.

So, to answer your question, patches 1 thru 3 in v15 are still useful even if we don't
consider reliable stacktrace. These patches reorganize the unwinder code based on
comments from both Mark Rutland and Mark Brown. Mark Brown has already OKed them.
If Mark Rutland OKes them, we should upstream them.

I can drop patches 4 thru 6. Actually, the objtool patch series that I have
sent separately for supporting livepatch already addresses reliability. So, if that
gets reviewed and accepted, we don't even need patches 4 thru 6.

If you are OK with that, I can resend v16 with just patches 1 thru 3. Let me know.
