Description of problem:
Provide a kdump option so that memory usage can be logged in second kernel at various stages. This can be useful to determine how much memory is needed in second kernel and in debugging to figure out who is consuming most memory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
We are now going to ship little modified crashkernel=auto logic in kdump and we are hoping that will work out of the box on 80% of x86 configurations by default. If it does not above debugging aid should be useful to give some idea who is consuming the memory. So 6.2 sounds like the right time to ship it out in kexec-tools.
POST status is invalid for kexec-tools bugs. What's more, Jan's patch is against Fedora, doesn't apply to RHEL6, so I need to re-generate the patch.
Tested with RHEL6.2-20110907.+kernel-2.6.32-198.el6+kexec-tools-2.0.0-202.el6, all PASS:
Change status to VERIFIED.
