More Alpha Proc Issues (wchan entries)

On a related note to proc problems.  The kernel wchan entries do not seem to 
be valid on either 2.6.10 or 2.6.12 (I haven't checked other versions).

When a process is suspended in the kernel, they should point to the function.  
The /proc/xxxx/wchan should be a decoded version (i.e., looked up in 
kallsyms), and the seventh entry from the end in /proc/xxxx/stat should be a 
non-decoded version (i.e., the raw address).

On the Alpha, both entries are the same (i.e, raw address), and both seem to 
be garbage (i.e., the addresses do not even come anywhere close to actual 
functions in /proc/kallsyms).
