Hello Andrew,

Another common code patch that we would like to have upstream is the vmcoreinfo
note initialization at Linux startup time. We need that for our traditional
stand-alone and hypervisor dump tools.

[1] kdump: Initialize vmcoreinfo note at startup
[2] s390: Export vmcoreinfo note

I already have discussed this with Vivek and he has acked the common code
patch [1].

Do you agree that Martin sends these patches together with the kdump page
table patches (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/9/15/55) in the next merge
