There is bpf_get_task_stack in kernel/bpf/stackmap.c. This can be called
inside of a BPF task iterator, where you can get the kernel stacks
for every task on the host. But as this change points out, this doesn't
work for crosstask user stack unwinding. I have a similar patch that
just exits early in this case:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-perf-users/20231111172001.1259065-1-linux@jordanrome.com/

Though I'm not opposed with just removing the *crosstask* param
entirely as a similar check was just added in the bpf tree for
bpf_get_task_stack:
https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20231108112334.3433136-1-jordalgo@meta.com/
