What I get is:

Pid: 4, comm: ksoftirqd/0 Tainted: GF 2.6.25-naoliv1 #2
[<f8992420>] [<b0231ffd>] [<b02380b9>] [<b011ed60>] [<b01060f2>]
[<b011f059>] [<b011efe1>] [<b01297c8>] [<b0129790>] [<b010473f>]

Something is saying to me that this won't help too much and that
probably I need to enable something related with debug (what do I need
to enable, please?)

BTW, is it a way to "pause" the messages after dump_stack()?

Thank you!
