Description of problem:
Use sparse file space in vmocre if page is zero-filled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.load up the RHEL3 kernel
2.panic the system, and create a core dump
3.take a netdump
Actual Results: currently it does not use sparse file space
Expected Results: use sparse file space in vmcore if page is zero-filled
netdump 0.7.14-1 has the fix, so the "Version-Release" number
should reflect the old (current) version.
