Comment 2 Dave Anderson 2015-08-03 10:06:52 EDT

Did you save the vmcore file?

It's typically impossible to debug crash issue that occur with dumpfiles
without having the vmcore.
Comment 3 Dave Anderson 2015-08-03 11:28:13 EDT
I have another vmcore and can reproduce the problem.

This was introduced by this RHEL7.2 bugzilla:

  BZ #1227508 - Enhancement to the ARM64 backtrace capability

It requires a one-line fix.
Comment 4 Dave Anderson 2015-08-03 13:59:28 EDT
Fix applied in the upstream crash-utility git repository:

  Fix for a segmentation violation generated by the ARM64 "bt -[f|F]" 
  options when analyzing the active tasks in vmcores generated by the
  kdump facility.  This bug is a regression that was introduced in 
  crash-7.1.2 by commit 15a58e4070486efa2aa965bdd636626e62b65cc7, which
  was an enhancement of the ARM64 backtrace capability for active tasks
  in kdump vmcores.
