These patches were lying in my tree for quite some time now. VMCOREINFO
numbers/symbols used in these patches have been made part of kdump kernel
patches for last few versions including v26. So, there seems no contention
on embedding VA_BITS, kimage_voffset and PHYS_OFFSET into vmcore.

These patches cleans up a lot arm64 code and also immunize it with many
kernel changes. Additionally,it adds 4 level 4K page support and support for
KASLR enabled kernel.

Azriel Samson (1):
  arm64: Add support for 4level 4K page translations table

Pratyush Anand (9):
  arm64: cleanup code, comment, blank space, blank lines etc
  read_vmcoreinfo_long: Allow to read hex values as well
  Introduce read_vmcoreinfo_ulong()
  arm64: use already available PAGESIZE() and PAGESHIFT() macros
  arm64: fix page_offset definition
  arm64: fix re-filtering
  arm64: use value of VA_BITS and PHYS_OFFSET embedded into vmcore
  arm64: immunize identity mapped address finding w.r.t. kernel changes
  arm64: fix memory layout as per changes in v4.6 kernel
