We see large latencies during a stack dump on x86. The
preempt_disable() and get_cpu() should forbid moving the task to another
CPU during a stack dump and avoiding two stack traces in parallel on the
same CPU. However a stack trace from a second CPU may still happen in
parallel. Also nesting is allowed so a stack trace happens in
process-context and we may have another one from IRQ context. With migrate
disable we keep this code preemptible and allow a second backtrace on
the same CPU by another task.
