Having kdbaux variable is shame, although it was me who introduced it
(I changed twice trapframe design on kernel stack).  When I started to
change trapframe design on kernel stack, backtrace code was severely
handicappped.  I reordered code sequence and made it more useful
rather than showing improper values.  I believe it's time to redo all
of DDB stuff because it could gather attentention again.
