I've got some more data for you.

Today I modified my copy of ftrace to add 'pstack' functionality.
(This took about 5 minutes... yay frysk!)  When I compare 'ftrace -s'
to pstack, the results are quite different.  I tried each on a bash
process waiting for command line input.

In particular the frysk-based trace is missing calls at both ends of
the stack (and pstack seems a bit better at finding the function
names, but that part isn't a surprise).
