This series adds support for ARM kernel crashdumps to makedumpfile. Although,
kernel support is not yet in mainline, I think that it doesn't hurt to have
necessary userspace tools available when that happens.

If someone wants to try, kernel patches can be found:

and kexec-tools already contain ARM crashdump support.


Mika Westerberg (3):
  use ARCH_PFN_OFFSET for pfn_to_paddr/paddr_to_pfn translations
  page_to_pfn(): use ULONGLONG_MAX to for invalid pfn
  add ARM crashdump support
