Subject[RFC PATCH v7 08/10] fadump: Invalidate registration and release reserved memory for general use.
From
Date
From: Mahesh Salgaonkar <mahesh@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

This patch introduces an sysfs interface '/sys/kernel/fadump_release_mem' to
invalidate the last fadump registration, invalidate '/proc/vmcore', release
the reserved memory for general use and re-register for future kernel dump.
Once the dump is copied to the disk, unlike phyp dump, the userspace tool
can release all the memory reserved for dump with one single operation of
echo 1 to '/sys/kernel/fadump_release_mem'.

Release the reserved memory region excluding the size of the memory required
for future kernel dump registration. And therefore, unlike kdump, Fadump
doesn't need a 2nd reboot to get back the system to the production
configuration.
