Subject[PATCH 2/2] UV: NMI: simple dump failover if kdump fails
Date
Subject: [PATCH 2/2] UV: NMI: simple dump failover if kdump fails

The ability to trigger a kdump using the system NMI command
was added by

commit 12ba6c990fab ("x86/UV: Add kdump to UV NMI handler")
Author: Mike Travis <travis@sgi.com>
Date: Mon Sep 23 16:25:03 2013 -0500

This is useful because when kdump is working the information gathered
is more informative than the original per CPU stack traces or "dump"
option. However a number of things can go wrong with kdump and then
the stack traces are more useful than nothing.

The two most common reasons for kdump to not be available are:
1) if a problem occurs during boot before the kdump service is
started, or
2) the kdump daemon failed to start.
In either case the call to crash_kexec() returns unexpectedly.

When this happens uv_nmi_kdump() also sets the uv_nmi_kexec_failed
flag which causes the slave CPU's to also return to the NMI handler.
Upon this unexpected return to the NMI handler, the NMI handler
will revert to the "dump" action which uses show_regs() to obtain
a process trace dump for all the CPU's.

Other minor changes:
The "dump" action now generates both the show_regs() stack trace
and show instruction pointer information. Whereas the "ips"
action only shows instruction pointers for non-idle CPU's. This
is more like an abbreviated "ps" display.

Change printk(KERN_DEFAULT...) --> pr_info()
