`makedumpfile --mem-usage /proc/kcore` has been broken after kaslr specific
modifications. A kernel patch has been ACKed by Andrew Morton and has been
sent to Linus now [0]. This kernel patch helps to fix the issue for both
the case of kaslr enabled and disabled.

Changes since v1:
 - One more patch..Now mem-usage with older kernel (< 4.11) will only work
   when that has been rightly patched and -f has been used in makedumpfile
   command line.

Baoquan He (2):
  makedumpfile: Correct the calculation of kvaddr in
  makedumpfile: Discard process_dump_load

Pratyush Anand (5):
  show_mem_usage(): calculate page offset after elf load
  initial(): call cach_init() a bit early
  x86_64: check physical address in PT_LOAD for none direct mapped
  elf_info: kcore: check for invalid physical address
  mem-usage: allow to work only with -f for kernel version < 4.11
