I don't think edebug has that feature, although I can't think of
any particular reason why not (as long as the calling function
you want to look at is instrumented, of course).

If your calling function is byte-compiled, you can improve things a little
by using the non-byte-compiled version in which case the backtrace will give
you more than just the calling function's name and arguments.  It won't give
you line numbers, but you should/might be able to recognize the calling
context enough to figure out which of the calls is currently active.
