2020-04-15crash_dump: Remove no longer used saved_max_pfnKairui Song1-6/+0
saved_max_pfn was originally introduced in commit 92aa63a5a1bf ("[PATCH] kdump: Retrieve saved max pfn") It used to make sure that the user does not try to read the physical memory beyond saved_max_pfn. But since commit 921d58c0e699 ("vmcore: remove saved_max_pfn check") it's no longer used for the check. This variable doesn't have any users anymore so just remove it.

2014-08-25crash_dump: Make is_kdump_kernel() accessible from modulesAmir Vadai1-0/+1
In order to make is_kdump_kernel() accessible from modules, need to make elfcorehdr_addr exported. This was rejected in the past [1] because reset_devices was prefered in that context (reseting the device in kdump kernel), but now there are some network drivers that need to reduce memory usage when loaded from a kdump kernel. And in that context, is_kdump_kernel() suits better.

2011-10-31kernel: Map most files to use export.h instead of module.hPaul Gortmaker1-1/+1
The changed files were only including linux/module.h for the EXPORT_SYMBOL infrastructure, and nothing else. Revector them onto the isolated export header for faster compile times. Nothing to see here but a whole lot of instances of: -#include <linux/module.h> +#include <linux/export.h> This commit is only changing the kernel dir; next targets will probably be mm, fs, the arch dirs, etc. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2011-10-30[S390] kdump: Add size to elfcorehdr kernel parameterMichael Holzheu1-0/+11
Currently only the address of the pre-allocated ELF header is passed with the elfcorehdr= kernel parameter. In order to reserve memory for the header in the 2nd kernel also the size is required. Current kdump architecture backends use different methods to do that, e.g. x86 uses the memmap= kernel parameter. On s390 there is no easy way to transfer this information. Therefore the elfcorehdr kernel parameter is extended to also pass the size. This now can also be used as standard mechanism by all future kdump architecture backends. The syntax of the kernel parameter is extended as follows: elfcorehdr=[size[KMG]@]offset[KMG] This change is backward compatible because elfcorehdr=size is still allowed.

2011-03-23crash_dump: export is_kdump_kernel to modules, consolidate elfcorehdr_addr, ↵Olaf Hering1-0/+34
setup_elfcorehdr and saved_max_pfn The Xen PV drivers in a crashed HVM guest can not connect to the dom0 backend drivers because both frontend and backend drivers are still in connected state. To run the connection reset function only in case of a crashdump, the is_kdump_kernel() function needs to be available for the PV driver modules. Consolidate elfcorehdr_addr, setup_elfcorehdr and saved_max_pfn into kernel/crash_dump.c Also export elfcorehdr_addr to make is_kdump_kernel() usable for modules. Leave 'elfcorehdr' as early_param(). This changes powerpc from __setup() to early_param(). It adds an address range check from x86 also on ia64 and powerpc.

2006-01-10[PATCH] kdump: read previous kernel's memoryVivek Goyal1-64/+0
- 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.

2005-06-25[PATCH] kdump: Access dump file in elf format (/proc/vmcore)Vivek Goyal1-1/+1
From: "Vivek Goyal" <vgoyal@in.ibm.com> o Support for /proc/vmcore interface. This interface exports elf core image either in ELF32 or ELF64 format, depending on the format in which elf headers have been stored by crashed kernel. o Added support for CONFIG_VMCORE config option. o Removed the dependency on /proc/kcore. From: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com> This patch has been refactored to more closely match the prevailing style in the affected files. And to clearly indicate the dependency between /proc/kcore and proc/vmcore.c From: Hariprasad Nellitheertha <hari@in.ibm.com> This patch contains the code that provides an ELF format interface to the previous kernel's memory post kexec reboot.
