Description Neil Horman 2007-06-21 11:05:05 EDT
Description of problem:
get_kernel_version has a fairly limited method for encoding kernel version info,
requiring an update every time the running kernel version goes outside of the
detectible range.  This is inefficient and wrong

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run latest version of makedumpfile on a kernel later than 2.6.19
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
makefumpfile will indicate the kernel version is unsupported

Expected results:
makedumpfile should work
