I don't think states can form a stack because start/stop will be called by
arbitrary threads. Instead, samplerthread would need to record activities of
all threads of profiling enabled.

But, in either ways, I don't think statprof can show a good result if
more than one threads are actively running and switched at random.

The other patches look generally good to me.
