I have been eagerly waiting for this release in order to address an
ongoing bug we have on ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin where makedumpfile
fails to generate the vmcoreinfo file :

My current test on the latest Ubuntu Precise kernel (3.2.0-24.39) show
that we still have the same issue :

> # /crashdata/tmp/usr/bin/makedumpfile -g /crashdata/kernel/linux-3.2.0/debian/linux-image-3.2.0-24-generic/boot/vmcoreinfo-3.2.0-24-generic -x /crashdata/kernel/linux-3.2.0/debian/build/build-generic/vmlinux
> generate_vmcoreinfo: Can't find the memory type.
> makedumpfile Failed.

There seems to be some issue in get_mem_type() that I will try to debug
further. Please let me know if you have something specific that you want
me to test and/or try as I have everything needed.

Kind regards,
