These two patches enable diskdump to compress memory and dump to the device
in the LKCD dump format. This functionality can make a dump file size
The configuration is specified by module parameter of diskdump
like "dump_level=xx" where (xx & 0x10) is non-zero.
Currently, these patches support only x86_64,
but i386 and ia64 support will also be available soon.
This patch is for the kernel.
Apply the partial dump patch to the kernel beforehand.
