Luis Henriques - May 7, 2013, 1:38 p.m.
3.5.7.12 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

commit 87889501d0adfae10e3b0f0e6f2d7536eed9ae84 upstream.

Use the stack of stack_trace_call() instead of check_stack() as
the test pointer for max stack size. It makes it a bit cleaner
and a little more accurate.

Adding stable, as a later fix depends on this patch.
