Looks like btrace of live threads is a problem on other arches too.

Description: modified (diff)

The problem (on arm32) is that istate_get() in syscall_handler(), for some reason, returns an address, which is 8 bytes off the actual istate_t structure on the kernel stack.

Looks like the discrepancy is explained by the following:

arm32 before_thread_runs_arch():

        stck = &THREAD->kstack[STACK_SIZE - SP_DELTA];
        supervisor_sp = (uintptr_t) stck;


       return (istate_t *) ((uint8_t *)
            thread->kstack + STACK_SIZE - sizeof(istate_t));
