The backtrace shows a branch out of the kernel, the last good address
is the starting point to find out why we branched to an invalid
address.  Back trace is listed as 0xc011ce83 dequeue_signal+0x43,
subtract 0x43 so dequeue_signal starts at 0xc011ce40.  Stop address is
the backtrace entry plus a bit to bracket the probable call
instruction.

The kernel build creates vmlinux under /usr/src/linux or wherever you
build your kernel.  All architectures build vmlinux then modify it as
required for booting.  Binutils tools like objdump do not understand
bzImage, they need the original ELF kernel, i.e. vmlinux.
