Hi Atsushi san,

We tried makedumpfile 1.5.0 on a 1TB machine and it seems to regress
badly. We reserved 192MB of memory and following are test results.

#1. makedumpfile-1.4.2 -E --message-level 1 -d 31
real     3m47.520s
user     0m56.543s

#2. makedumpfile-1.5.0 -E --message-level 1 -d 31
real     52m25.262s
user     32m51.310s
sys	 18m53.265s

#3. makedumpfile-1.4.2 -c --message-level 1 -d 31
real     8m49.107s
