We have now four different firmware branches to support and I fear even
more to come. Adding yet another branch is quite daunting from
maintenance point of view.

Crash dump support is already upstream, but what's missing is porting it
to use Johannes' device coredump (commit 833c95456a70) and RAM dump
part. (And I guess we also want some sort register dump?)

Last year I implemented the RAM dump part, but only did some quick
verification and that's why I haven't submitted it yet. I think I need
to submit it as RFC instead of bitrotting on my hard drive.
