Description of problem:
Ref: bug 122340
Note that the diskdump function provided in RHEL is insufficuent for our needs. We have Itanium servers with 32Gb of RAM and dumping the *entire* 32GB to disk is both time-consuming and logistically difficult to manage.
Additionally we require 32Gb of dedicated disk for the dump, plus an additional minimum of 32Gb of disk in /var/crash.
LKCD presents a better solution and should be added to this release.
