Analysis Targets

These targets are good for trying to find problem code in the kernel. It's a good idea to create a stack space list when creating new code to determine that your changes are not taking up too much kernel stack space. The namespacecheck target is useful for determining whether your changes can safely add its symbols to the kernel's global namespace.
