Hi Dave,

This series brings ARM support for the crash utility. This is the result of
collaboration work with Nokia and SonyEricsson. Basically we combined our
versions of the code. Previous version of the patches can be found here:


We tried to keep any ARM specific changes isolated with #ifdefs and similar so
that it should not cause any problems with other archs.

In this series:
	o crash can be build as native ARM binary or "cross" version running on
	  x86 host (make target=ARM to build "cross" version)
	o supports kdump, diskdump and /dev/mem (live system)
	o stack unwinding with both framepointers and ARM unwind tables
	o most of the arch specific code is implemented

The patches apply on top of crash 5.0.6 sources.

Best regards,
