[aspectc-user] Get caller of aspect

You could trace the dynamic call graph with execution advice instead if
call advice. This has the advantage that you get the signature of the
right (dynamically dispatched) target function in case of virtual
function calls or calls via function pointers.

If you actually need context information from the caller side, which is
not the case in your example code, you could also implement a
combination of call and execution advice. For instance, if you push the
function name on a stack (per thread) in the execution advice, the top
of stack can be used in the call advice to obtain the caller's name.

Best regards,
