Ah, right, I bet that's it, thanks.  The kdump path is basically this:


while the usual kexec path is:

        while (!list_empty(&devices_kset->list))
            pci_device_shutdown            # pci_bus_type.shutdown

So maybe we need to explore doing some or all of device_shutdown() in
the crash_kexec() path as well as in the kernel_kexec() path.
