[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

This is now straightforward: just introduce a module parameter and pass
the needed value to persistent_ram_new().

 The module uses a counter to record multiple dumps but the counter gets reset
 on restart (i.e. new dumps after the restart will overwrite old ones).
+Ramoops also supports software ECC protection of persistent memory regions.
+This might be useful when a hardware reset was used to bring the machine back
+to life (i.e. a watchdog triggered). In such cases, RAM may be somewhat
+corrupt, but usually it is restorable.
 2. Setting the parameters
 Setting the ramoops parameters can be done in 2 different manners:
