// It can work with a ProfileBuffer and/or a ProfileChunkedBuffer (if both, they
// must already be linked together). The ProfileChunkedBuffer contains all the
// data; the ProfileBuffer is not strictly needed, only provide it if it is
// already available at the call site.
// And these buffers can either be:
// - owned here, so that the ProfilerBacktrace object can be kept for later
// use), OR
// - referenced through pointers (in cases where the backtrace is immediately
// streamed out, so we only need temporary references to external buffers);
// these pointers may be null for empty backtraces.
