    Interesting. My imagination when I proposed this
    was something based on struct resource that works
    like /proc/iomem on x86 but can be meaningfully
    be used on systems with where ram lives in a separate
    address space from io device memory.

    The lack of a type field looses a fair amount of functionality compared
    to /proc/iomem. In particular you can't see where the ACPI data is.

    The other direction something like this can go is to dump
    the data structures in linux/mmzone.h

    I'm not quite certain what is happening.

    I have been playing with kexec user space a little bit and a new
    development release is at:

    I have written a first pass at a user space core dump generator,
    using /dev/mem. /sbin/kexec still needs some work to prepare
    the ELF headers before a crash.
