arm64: fix dump_backtrace/unwind_frame with NULL tsk

In some places, dump_backtrace() is called with a NULL tsk parameter,
e.g. in bug_handler() in arch/arm64, or indirectly via show_stack() in
core code. The expectation is that this is treated as if current were
passed instead of NULL. Similar is true of unwind_frame().

Commit a80a0eb7

 ("arm64: make irq_stack_ptr more robust") didn't
take this into account. In dump_backtrace() it compares tsk against
current *before* we check if tsk is NULL, and in unwind_frame() we never
set tsk if it is NULL.

Due to this, we won't initialise irq_stack_ptr in either function. In
dump_backtrace() this results in calling dump_mem() for memory
immediately above the IRQ stack range, rather than for the relevant
range on the task stack. In unwind_frame we'll reject unwinding frames
on the IRQ stack.

In either case this results in incomplete or misleading backtrace
information, but is not otherwise problematic. The initial percpu areas
(including the IRQ stacks) are allocated in the linear map, and dump_mem
uses __get_user(), so we shouldn't access anything with side-effects,
and will handle holes safely.

This patch fixes the issue by having both functions handle the NULL tsk
case before doing anything else with tsk.
