Subject: [PATCH 3.19-rc2 v13 5/5] ARM: Fix on-demand backtrace triggered by IRQ

Currently if arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() is called with interrupts
disabled and on a platform the delivers IPI_CPU_BACKTRACE using regular
IRQ requests the system will wedge for ten seconds waiting for the
current CPU to react to a masked interrupt.

This patch resolves this issue by calling directly into the backtrace
dump code instead of generating an IPI.
