It looks to me that this function is just doing the similar check that
check_stack_object() may do.
Probably I guess you had a problem in checking the correct fp of
caller's function while you tried to use walk_stackframe().
Anyway, your patch works fine for me.
But, I can not find any reason to create check_obj_in_unused_stack().
Instead of creating check_obj_in_unused_stack(), how about handing
over current_stack_pointer to check_stack_object();
Even though Akashi's case happens, since we hand over correct stack
pointer, it can check if the obj is within the correct stack boundary.
