    True. There are many of us who continue to work on LKCD. Kdump is extremely
    promising, but it's simply not ready for commercial use. Last I checked it
    was i386 only and there are several conditions that can result in not being
    able to generate a crash dump. LKCD using a non-interrupt driven based
    polling mode (a la diskdump) has become quite capable of generating crash
    dumps from very nasty situations.

    When kdump gets to the point where it works as well as LKCD on IA-64, i386,
    and x86_64 I'll be happy to switch over.
