    I always liked the AIX dumper choices. You could either dump to
    the swap area (and startup detects the dump and moves it to the
    filesystem before swapon) or provide a dedicated dump partition. The
    latter was prefered.
    Either of these methods merely require the dumper to correctly
    write to one disk partition. This is about as simple as you are going
    to get in disk dumping.
