[PATCH] kdump: read previous kernel's memory
- Moving the crash_dump.c file to arch dependent part as kmap_atomic_pfn is specific to i386 and highmem may not exist in other archs. - Use ioremap for x86_64 to map the previous kernel memory. - In copy_oldmem_page(), we now directly copy to the user/kernel buffer and avoid the unneccesary copy to a kmalloc'd page.
