And for further conformity -- since no other crash commands use the
"argument=option" format -- and for further simplicity, I'll make
it easier to invoke:

crash> help foreach

foreach - display command data for multiple tasks in the system

foreach [[pid | taskp | name | state | [kernel | user]] ...]
command [flag] [argument]

This command allows for a an examination of various kernel data associated
with any, or all, tasks in the system, without having to set the context
to each targeted task.

pid perform the command(s) on this PID.
taskp perform the command(s) on task referenced by this hexadecimal
task_struct pointer.
name perform the command(s) on all tasks with this name. If the
task name can be confused with a foreach command name, then
precede the name string with a "". If the name string is
enclosed within "'" characters, then the encompassed string
must be a POSIX extended regular expression that will be used
to match task names.
user perform the command(s) on all user (non-kernel) threads.
kernel perform the command(s) on all kernel threads.
active perform the command(s) on the active thread on each CPU.
state perform the command(s) on all tasks in the specified state, which
may be one of: RU, IN, UN, ST, ZO, SW or DE.
If none of the task-identifying arguments above are entered, the command
will be performed on all tasks.

... [ cut ] ...

Display the stack traces for all blocked (TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE) tasks:

crash> foreach UN bt
PID: 428 TASK: ffff880036b6c560 CPU: 1 COMMAND: "jbd2/dm-1-8"

#11 [ffff880035779f48] kernel_thread_helper at ffffffff815ebaf4


And again, thanks for the concept -- it's really pretty useful.
