Subject[PATCH v4 2/6] printk: honor the max_reason field in kmsg_dumper
Date
From: Pavel Tatashin <pasha.tatashin@soleen.com>

kmsg_dump() allows to dump kmesg buffer for various system events: oops,
panic, reboot, etc. It provides an interface to register a callback call
for clients, and in that callback interface there is a field "max_reason"
which gets ignored unless always_kmsg_dump is passed as kernel parameter.

Allow clients to decide max_reason, and keep the current behavior when
max_reason is not set.
