I found that confusing, when I started reading the code without the patch documentation, since a struct GC_activation_frame_s isn't really a single frame.  I think it would be good to consistently rename this, e.g. to traced_section.

Yes, I don't think "activation frame" (covering a group of adjacent stack frames) is good here neither (nor "non-[do-]blocking something" term). I change it to traced_stack_sect.
