Subject: [PATCH] sched/x86: Add 'struct inactive_task_frame' to better
document the sleeping task stack frame
commit 7b32aeadbc95d4a41402c1c0da6aa3ab51af4c10 upstream.
Add 'struct inactive_task_frame', which defines the layout of the stack for
a sleeping process. For now, the only defined field is the BP register
(frame pointer).
