Unless you overrode the default, qemu is compiled with optimization. In this 
case gcc and gdb will do their best, but it's normal for the debug 
information to be inaccurate. In particular there's no requirement that the 
compiler create a full stack frame, so you're relying on being able to track 
where the compiler happens to put things. Different toolchain versions are 
able to do this with different levels of accuracy.

If you're backtracing through dynamically generated code that will almost 
certainly confuse the debugger.

Once you hit a frame that gdb doesn't know about [???] all bets are off, and 
the rest of the backtrace is most likely random garbage.
