    It's very nice to see this technology revived.

    Is the information at:
    http://pramfs.sourceforge.net/
    and
    http://pramfs.sourceforge.net/pramfs-spec.html
    still valid - particularly the latter?

    It would be very nice to see this get mainlined. I believe that
    one of the main uses for this is to store crash information
    over a reboot so the next kernel (not in crashing state) can have
    a better chance of dealing with it. As such, I think
    it's important to keep the code paths for Pramfs short, synchronous,
    and unentangled with other kernel systems (block IO, page cache, etc.).

    Thanks,
