assert fail message should include a stack trace?

Bug Description

It would be very useful if a stack trace was included in assert fail messages. This is easy on vxWorks, and may also be possible without unreasonable effort on Windows and Linux. On vxWorks we provide instructions to the user on how to obtain a stack trace, but this rarely results in a stack trace being sent with the bug report, so perhaps it would be best to just go ahead and dump a stack trace when the assert message is generated.

Both epicsAssert() and cantProceed() now print a stack trace.
