3.11.10.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <k.khlebnikov@samsung.com>

commit 1b15ec7a7427d4188ba91b9bbac696250a059d22 upstream.

get_wchan() is lockless. Task may wakeup at any time and change its own stack,
thus each next stack frame may be overwritten and filled with random stuff.

/proc/$pid/stack interface had been disabled for non-current tasks, see [1]
But 'wchan' still allows to trigger stack frame unwinding on volatile stack.

This patch fixes oops in unwind_frame() by adding stack pointer validation on
each step (as x86 code do), unwind_frame() already checks frame pointer.

Also I've found another report of this oops on stackoverflow (irony).
