Subject[PATCH 09/11] x86_64: x86_64 add crashdump trigger points
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Vivek Goyal <>

o Start booting into the capture kernel after an Oops if system is in a
unrecoverable state. System will boot into the capture kernel, if one is
pre-loaded by the user, and capture the kernel core dump.

o One of the following conditions should be true to trigger the booting of
capture kernel.
- panic_on_oops is set.
- pid of current thread is 0
- pid of current thread is 1
- Oops happened inside interrupt context.
