No, that still is a completely trashed kernel stack as previously
seen when running under QEMU so the whole backtrace is questionable.
Apart from that, sched_clock() is called rather frequently so it is
not unlikely to show up in a kernel back trace but neither of the
two back traces in question suggest it's the culprit (assuming that
the one seen with QEMU actually is sane).
