Sorry, I have no clue what makedumpfile does exactly so you'd have to
be more detailed (or wait until I look at it :)). Which kernel accesses
which kernel's pagetable?

/me goes and looks at the makedumpfile's manpage...

Ok, it uses vmcoreinfo to exclude pages which would mean, it accesses
the first kernel's pagetable and traverses it.

Am I close?
