BTW, ioresouce information (see kernel/resouce.c)

[kamezawa@aworks Development]$ cat /proc/iomem | grep RAM
00000000-0009fbff : System RAM
000a0000-000bffff : Video RAM area
00100000-2dfeffff : System RAM
is not enough ?

I think kdump depends on this resouce information to determine
where should be dumped.
