This set of patches implements the remote kernel crash dump capability
for Debian and Ubuntu.

With this patchset, it is possible to have the result of the makedumpfile
pass or the plain vmcore content to be sent remotely to a server running
sshd or exporting a writable NFS mountpoint.

This new functionality is similar to those currently available on other
distributions, namely RHEL and SLES.

Details on the implementation and tests can be found in the following blog
post :
