I am not sure which parts you are working on. Are you going to provide
also patch for makedumpfile, please? I get the following failure when
creating the crashdump using:

echo c >/proc/sysrq-trigger


The kernel version is not supported.
The makedumpfile operation may be incomplete.
dump_dmesg: Can't find variable-length record symbols
makedumpfile Failed.
Running makedumpfile --dump-dmesg /proc/vmcore failed (1).


Best Regards,
Petr
