Given it has only one target, it’s overkill to define a specific permission type for stack walking use.   This patch proposes to replace the StackWalker permission check with RuntimePermission("getStackWalkerWithClassReference”) and remove StackFramePermission class.
The target name is long but I agree with removing this permission (and 
the changes look good).
