NAME

       function::sprint_backtrace - Return stack back trace as string

SYNOPSIS

           sprint_backtrace:string()

ARGUMENTS

       None

DESCRIPTION

       Returns a simple (kernel) backtrace. One line per address. Includes the symbol name (or
       hex address if symbol couldn't be resolved) and module name (if found). Includes the
       offset from the start of the function if found, otherwise the offset will be added to the
       module (if found, between brackets). Returns the backtrace as string (each line terminated
       by a newline character). Note that the returned stack will be truncated to MAXSTRINGLEN,
       to print fuller and richer stacks use print_backtrace. Equivalent to
       sprint_stack(backtrace), but more efficient (no need to translate between hex strings and
       final backtrace string).
