Hi LKCD guys,

We (SGI) have a new tool ("dwarfextract") that can
extract all the kernel types from a kernel and kernel
modules that were built with -g.

Its output file would replace /boot/Kerntypes and
allow lcrash (and especially sial scripts) to interpret
any and every part of the kernel.

The dwarfextract code consists of a single C module.
And can simply be placed in lkcdutils/dwarf/dwarfdump/
and compiled.
The tool is currently only tested on the ia64 platform.

We would like to contribute it the LKCD project, if
you agree.

Hello to Matt R. - I assume you're still working
on LKCD.
