Subject: [PATCH 4.9 34/58] perf report: Include partial stacks unwound with libdw

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

commit 5ea0416f51cc93436bbe497c62ab49fd9cb245b6 upstream.

So far the whole stack was thrown away when any error occurred before
the maximum stack depth was unwound. This is actually a very common
scenario though. The stacks that got unwound so far are still
interesting. This removes a large chunk of differences when comparing
perf script output for libunwind and libdw perf unwinding.

E.g. with libunwind:

With this patch applied, the libdw unwinder will produce the same
output as the libunwind unwinder.
