Kernel#caller from arglist is missing a stack frame #1376

The spec below (from promise.rb's suite) failed because it asserted the exact position of a stack frame within the backtrace. This broke because, when calling Kernel#caller from a method's arglist (i.e. def fulfill(value = nil, backtrace = caller), JRuby doesn't include that method's stack frame in the backtrace. I worked around that by moving the call into the method's body: lgierth/promise.rb@a3374fa

1) Promise#reject sets the backtrace
     Failure/Error: .to include(__FILE__ + ':' + (__LINE__ - 2).to_s)
       expected "/home/travis/.rvm/gems/jruby-1.7.8-d19/gems/rspec-core-2.14.7/lib/rspec/core/example.rb:114:in `instance_eval'" to include "/home/travis/build/lgierth/promise.rb/spec/promise_spec.rb:387"
     # ./spec/promise_spec.rb:389:in `(root)'

JRuby doesn't execute it within the method's
stack frame, apparantly.

Looks like this is now working just as expected.

require 'pp'

def foo(backtrace = caller)
  pp backtrace

def bar(bactrace = nil)
  backtrace ||= caller
  pp backtrace

def baz

Hey thanks for checking!

cc @dylanahsmith there might be code to be updated somewhere in promise.rb :)
