Hi everybody,

kernel 2.6.30 is near so i think it is time for the next try.

This is the new version of the "detailed stack info" patch which give
you a better overview of the userland application stack usage,
especially for embedded linux.

Currently you are only able to dump the main process/thread stack usage
which is showed in /proc/pid/status by the "VmStk" Value. But you get no
information about the consumed stack memory of the the threads.

There is an enhancement in the /proc/<pid>/{task/*,}/*maps and which
marks the vm mapping where the thread stack pointer reside with "[thread
stack xxxxxxxx]". xxxxxxxx is the start address of the stack.

Also there is a new entry "stack usage" in /proc/<pid>/{task/*,}/status
which will you give the current stack usage in kb.

I also fixed stack base address in /proc/<pid>/task/*/stat to the base
address of the associated thread stack and not the one of the main
process. This makes more sense.

Changes since last posting:

 - Redesigned everything what was suggested by Ingo
 - the thread watch monitor is gone
 - the /proc/stackmon entry is also gone
 - slime done

The patch is against 2.6.30-rc7 and tested with on intel and ppc
architectures.

I think it is now ready for inclusion in the main kernel. Ingo what do
you think?

Greetings,
Stefani
