But if STACKTRACE depends on STACKTRACE_SUPPORT, which isn't defined on ia64, 
kconfig should disable FAULT_INJECTION altogether with my patch (as it did 
before it). I don't think that FAULT_INJECTION could be enabled before my 
patch, right?

_BUT_ probably STACKTRACE_SUPPORT should be defined, with default n and no 
prompt, on ia64, or Kconfig gets confused (it should output a warning, 
like 'undefined symbol STACKTRACE_SUPPORT'). We on UML used to get warning 
when INPUT was used but not defined. Hmmm....

I'm interested in this because I also sent the patch to -stable, and Akinobu's 
patch would be worse to merge there.
