Description Qian Cai 2010-05-23 09:14:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Kdump kernel failed to load several modules on my X200 and KVM guests. I concern about this a general problem that might affect other modules as well (not only the sound drivers here) which can prevent the loss of vmcore.

This is another dup of the modprobe issue that we've been waiting on jcm for.
