Okay. Thanks so much for your hints.
Yes, I understand that this code is horribly ugly and bad.
But this is only to understand if the below logic is fine to get the
irq stack usage:
{{{
for_each_present_cpu(cpu) {
irq_stack_ptr = IRQ_STACK_PTR(cpu);
//unsigned long sp = current_stack_pointer;

stack_start = (unsigned long)per_cpu(irq_stack, cpu);
free_stack = irq_stack_ptr - stack_start;
seq_printf(m, "%2d %10lu %10d\n", cpu, free_stack, actual);
}
}}}
Of course, final plan is not the proc entry, but to find a relevant
place to invoke it, probably during boot time, or during backtrace.

Yes, exactly, this is what the main intention.
If you have any better idea about this approach, please refer me.
It will be of great help.

Thank You!
