Subject[PATCH v2] char drivers: Ram oops/panic logger
Ramoops, like mtdoops, can log oops/panic information but in RAM. It can
be used with persistent RAM for systems without flash support. In
addition, for this systems, with this driver, it's no more needed
add to the kernel the mtd subsystem with advantage in footprint.
