Hi Boris,

Yes, I am working on V3. I have been doing some more work to complete the
series. Specifically make the patches work with UEFI system and also wrote
code for verifying PKCS7 signature of bzImage. Signature verification code
I will post separately.

I am just battling a weared race condition where nested kdump seems to
fail on UEFI system sometimes. Some checksum issue. Hopefully I will be able
to resolve soon and repost patches for review.
