Interesting feature.

According to "Documentation/kdump.txt", we need to apply the following patches
to build "mini-kernel".

http://www.xmission.com/~ebiederm/files/kexec/2.6.8.1-kexec3/
broken-out/highbzImage.i386.patch
http://www.xmission.com/~ebiederm/files/kexec/2.6.8.1-kexec3/
broken-out/vmlinux-lds.i386.patch

But, Appling "arch/i386/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S" to 2.6.9-rc2-mm2 failed.

Someone who try to make mini-kernel against 2.6.9-rc2-m2, also need below patch.
