        Architecture: amd64
        Machine: amd64
        ddb's "backtrace" command doesn't show any function arguments
        on an amd64 machine.  One example is:

                db{5}> bt
                breakpoint() at netbsd:breakpoint+0x5
                panic() at netbsd:panic+0x260
                __kernassert() at netbsd:__kernassert+0x2d
                uipc_usrreq() at netbsd:uipc_usrreq+0x850
                sosend() at netbsd:sosend+0x506
                soo_write() at netbsd:soo_write+0x2d
                dofilewrite() at netbsd:dofilewrite+0x81
                sys_write() at netbsd:sys_write+0x72
                syscall() at netbsd:syscall+0x9a

        Type "bt" at a ddb prompt on an amd64 machine.

        Not sure.  Just changing amd64/md64/db_trace.c:db_numargs()
        to return "6" instead of "0" didn't look to provide realistic
        function args at a glance - I think this is similar to
        sparc/mips/<other-register-args-archs> do?  Maybe tempt the
        compiler somehow to save function arguments on the stack?
