 * This class represents a native call path (does not include Java frame)
 * This class is developed in the context of native memory tracking, it can
 * be an useful tool for debugging purpose.
 * For example, following code should print out native call path:
 *   ....
 *   NativeCallStack here;
 *   here.print_on(tty);
 *   ....
 * However, there are a couple of restrictions on this class. If the restrictions are
 * not strictly followed, it may break native memory tracking badly.
 * 1. Number of stack frames to capture, is defined by native memory tracking.
 *    This number has impacts on how much memory to be used by native
 *    memory tracking.
 * 2. The class is strict stack object, no heap or virtual memory can be allocated
 *    from it.
