SubjectRe: [PATCH v3] mmap_vmcore: skip non-ram pages reported by hypervisors

Hi Vitaly,

Thanks for the changes. Few more minor nits are below.

Can we use following comment style for multi line comments.

/*
* multi line comment.
*/

^^^^^
Do you still need multiple lines here to pass parameters. I think atleast
"prot" should right next to PAGE_SIZE.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Same here. Looks like vma->vm_page_prot should fit in line above.

Lets use multi line comment style.

Thanks
