    Nice work, I think this will fix my problems :) I have some comments - not
    sure how many of them are sane.

    I think the indent is wrong (mixed tabs + spaces) in ramoops_init. Tried to
    fix it, but my email client just made it worse :p

    With this patch, ramoops_platform_data takes precedence over module
    parameters. Should it maybe be the other way?

    I think you can just statically allocate ramoops_platform_data, since it's
    only 2x(unsigned long)? You will use one more long in .data, but less in

    Not related to the patch: Should the printks end with "\n"? If i do
    printk(KERN_ERR "a"); printk(KERN_ERR "b"); I get two lines, but with
    printk(KERN_ERR "a"); printk("b"); they end up on the same line. So if another
    driver did printk without KERN_ after ramoops, they would end up on same line?
