Since efforts of people (including Keith Owens and Takenori Nagano) to get the fix to upstream kernel failed, i recently committed to get the siutation resolved from the KDB side. > I took his patch and ported to i386, then I tested the kdump > command inside kdb, the result is okay, it works well in i386 and > x86_64, the kernel I was using includes a couple of releases between > 2.6.16 and 2.6.18.

A patch to KDB should work on x86_64, i386 and ia64. > > In the meanwhile, I don't think the patch summitted by Joe, (I mean > the "kdump-kdb" patch) is really necessary. I do not have a chance to try Joe's kdump-kdb patch yet. I think Joe made it clear that it was OK not including his patch. I believe he would be happy to see a solution if your revised patch works great.
