kind of, but not exactly. It is a symbol name...could be a
function/procedure etc, but certainly (in most cases I know of) not a
macro/inlined function.

If you find that name through grepping kernel source tree, you shall
find the culprit. The next number "0x38/0x60" AFAIK is the offset that
shall point you to more exact location
