I am trying to dump calling stack in Xen in my codes instead of using
kgdb like tools. oprofile seems to be one possibility.

While oprofile is already included in kernel 2.6.11, I don't
see this option when I do "make ARCH=xen menuconfig".  Actually I always
see the call stack dump after I crash the kernel. So I think there are
some codes in kernel that can dump the stack information. But I haven't
find them. :)

Can someone kindly tell me how to do this? Thanks in advance!
