Why it is per cpu crash_note?

I bet Tim is using i386 machine, and on i386 we have,


static int get_crash_notes(int cpu, uint64_t *addr, uint64_t *len)
char crash_notes[PATH_MAX];
char line[MAX_LINE];
FILE *fp;
unsigned long vaddr;
int count;
sprintf(crash_notes, "/sys/kernel/crash_notes");
fp = fopen(crash_notes, "r");
if (fp) {
} else
return get_crash_notes_per_cpu(cpu, addr, len);
As long as we have .notes section, /sys/kernel/crash_notes exists.
So I see no reason that is per cpu notes stuff.
