SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 1/4] powerpc/fadump: reduce memory consumption for capture kernel
From
Date
Hi Michal,


Thanks for the patches. I tried testing with the patches:

[ 0.000000] fadump: Firmware-assisted dump is active.
[ 0.000000] fadump: Modifying command line to enforce the additional
parameters passed through 'fadump_extra_args='
[ 0.000000] fadump: Original command line:
BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinux-4.13.0-rc1-bz155783+ root=/dev/mapper/rhel-root ro
crashkernel=2048M fadump=on fadump_reserve_mem=1024M
"fadump_extra_args=nr_cpus=1 numa=off udev.childern-max=2"
rd.lvm.lv=rhel/root rd.lvm.lv=rhel/swap
[ 0.000000] fadump: Modified command line:
BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinux-4.13.0-rc1-bz155783+ root=/dev/mapper/rhel-root ro
crashkernel=2048M fadump=on fadump_reserve_mem=1024M "fadump_extra_args
nr_cpus=1 numa=off udev.childern-max=2" rd.lvm.lv=rhel/root
rd.lvm.lv=rhel/swap

Looks like the quotes are retained not enforcing the parameters...

I am yet to test the patches in other scenarios though..


Thanks

Hari
