I agree. Format conversion should be done in healthy system separately
and we should restrict what to do while taking the dump as few as
possible. Conversion from just memory image to crash/lcrash format will
be very useful to use existing tools and experiences. I already have
such tool and (if my administration allows) I can make such tool open.
Let me do some paperwork.
