This creates per-architecture function arch_within_stack_frames() that
should validate if a given object is contained by a kernel stack frame.
Initial implementation is on x86.

This is based on code from PaX.

+	  frames to determine if an object is part of either the arguments
+	  or local variables (i.e. that it excludes saved return addresses,
