tracing/kprobes: Fix kprobe-tracer to support stack trace

Fix to support kernel stack trace correctly on kprobe-tracer.
Since the execution path of kprobe-based dynamic events is different
from other tracepoint-based events, normal ftrace_trace_stack() doesn't
work correctly. To fix that, this introduces ftrace_trace_stack_regs()
which traces stack via pt_regs instead of current stack register.

e.g.

 # echo p schedule+4 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events
 # echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/options/stacktrace
 # echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/kprobes/enable
 # head -n 20 /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
            bash-2968  [000] 10297.050245: p_schedule_4: (schedule+0x4/0x4ca)
            bash-2968  [000] 10297.050247: <stack trace>
 => schedule_timeout
 => n_tty_read
 => tty_read
 => vfs_read
 => sys_read
 => system_call_fastpath
     kworker/0:1-2940  [000] 10297.050265: p_schedule_4: (schedule+0x4/0x4ca)
     kworker/0:1-2940  [000] 10297.050266: <stack trace>
 => worker_thread
 => kthread
 => kernel_thread_helper
            sshd-1132  [000] 10297.050365: p_schedule_4: (schedule+0x4/0x4ca)
            sshd-1132  [000] 10297.050365: <stack trace>
 => sysret_careful

Note: Even with this fix, the first entry will be skipped
if the probe is put on the function entry area before
the frame pointer is set up (usually, that is 4 bytes
 (push %bp; mov %sp %bp) on x86), because stack unwinder
depends on the frame pointer.
