Without any debuginfos still as all the rpms are built using gcc option
-fasynchronous-unwind-tables GDB will print the backtraces correctly but only
with numeric addresses (no function names) and without any function parameters
or local variables printed.

In some specific cases IIRC the backtrace will stop at some point.  These
cases should be fixed and there are just missing bugreports/reproducers for
them.  I do not know of such case offhand myself now, if it did happen at all.

One should also write down build-ids (sort of =NVRs) to be able to later
retrace the numerical backtraces on some debuginfo-featuring server.
