I'd ask the kernel mailing list. The instruction pointer probably won't
coincide exactly with a symbol, of course.

No. "Not tainted" means that you haven't loaded any non-GPL-compatible
kernel modules. Kernel developers will often refuse to debug problems
from tainted kernels, since for instance they might end up needing to
inspect the (inaccessible) source to binary-only modules.
In other words, don't worry about it.
