+HAVE_FUNCTION_GRAPH_FP_TEST
+---------------------------
+
+An arch may pass in a unique value (frame pointer) to both the entering and
+exiting of a function.  On exit, the value is compared and if it does not
+match, then it will panic the kernel.  This is largely a sanity check for bad
+code generation with gcc.  If gcc for your port sanely updates the frame
+pointer under different opitmization levels, then ignore this option.
+
+However, adding support for it isn't terribly difficult.  In your assembly code
+that calls prepare_ftrace_return(), pass the frame pointer as the 3rd argument.
+Then in the C version of that function, do what the x86 port does and pass it
+along to ftrace_push_return_trace() instead of a stub value of 0.
+
+Similarly, when you call ftrace_return_to_handler(), pass it the frame pointer.
