Actually, this patch added a docs build warning:

  /stuff/k/git/kernel/Documentation/admin-guide/kdump/kdump.rst:286: WARNING: Literal block ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.

I've gone ahead and inserted the blank line to fix this.  In the future,
please build-test your changes to make sure that you are not adding new
