This issue was reported by Stefan Agner in 2014 for the VF610 [1], not
sure if I asked already whether there should be a Reported-by line?
Stefan, have you had a chance to test this patch?

Back then on STM32F4 I debugged that disabling KALLSYMS works around it.

Now on a different XIP target I have confirmed this patch to help show a
stacktrace (my clk driver was missing some CLK_DIVIDER_ALLOW_ZEROs) ...
although my earlyprintk serial output still gets stuck further down the
stacktrace - probably unrelated.

But this is definitely an improvement for ARMv7-M debugging,
