Subject[PATCH] ehea: Add kdump support
Date
To support ehea driver reloading in a kdump kernel the driver has to perform
firmware handle deregistrations when the original kernel crashes. As there's
currently no notifier chain for machine crashes this patch enables kdump support
in the ehea driver by bending the ppc_md.machine_crash_shutdown hook to its own
machine crash handler. The original machine_crash_shutdown() fn is called
afterwards. This works fine as long as the ehea driver is the only one which
does so. Problems may occur if other drivers do the same and unload regularly.
This patch enables 2.6.24-rc2 to use kdump with ehea and only puts a very
low risk on base kernel. In 2.6.24 we know ehea is the only user of this
mechanism. The next step for 2.6.25 would be to add a proper notifier chain.
The full solution might be that register_reboot_notifier() provides sth
like a SYS_CRASH action. Please apply.
