 crash      - kernel debugging utility, allowing gdb like syntax
 crash (6.0.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream version 6.0.4
   * Fix to allow the recently-added "mod -g" and "mod -r" options to be used
     together.  Without the patch, if both options were used, the command would
     fail with a "mod: invalid option" error complaining about one or the other
     option letter.
   * Additional update for 3.1.x and later kernels configured with CONFIG_SLAB,
     which have replaced the kmem_cache.nodelists[] array with a pointer to an
     outside array.  Without the patch, depending upon a system's cpu
     configuration and actual cpu count, the crash session may display "crash:
     unable to initialize kmem slab cache subsystem" during invocation, or if
     it does succeed, "kmem -s" may generate a segmentation violation.
   * Document the "crash [-h|--help] all" option in the crash.8 man page and in
     the "crash [-h|--help]" output.
   * Fix the S390/S390X-specific "s390dbf" command's "hex_ascii" debug data
     printing routine to prevent the display of non-ASCII characters.
   * Fix for ARM stack unwinding on 3.2 and later kernels due to commit:
   * Implemented a new "search -x <count>" option that displays the memory
     contents before and after any found search target.  The before and after
     memory context will consist of "count" memory items of the same size as
     the searched-for value.  This option is not applicable with the -c option.
   * Fix for the x86_64 Xen hypervisor "bt" command.  Without the patch, the
     contents of the RDX register in exception frames incorrectly shows the
     contents of the RCX register.
   * Implementation of a platform-based vmalloc address translation scheme for
     the 32-bit PPC architecture, introducing support for the PPC44X platform
     while maintaining the current default platform.  Related to that, the PTE
     translation function used by "vtop" properly handles platforms that use
     64-bit PTEs, and the "mach" command displays the kernel's
     "powerpc_base_platform" name string.
   * Fix for the usage of native gdb commands where the command output is
     redirected to a pipe and then redirected to a file.
   * Fix to prevent a crash session that is run over a network connection that
     is killed/removed from going into 100% cpu-time loop.  The fix that went
     into crash-5.0.2 to handle the change in behavior of the built-in
     readline() library call does not suffice in cases where readline() never
     gets a chance to be called.  Accordingly, the crash session is now
     initialized with a PR_SET_PDEATHSIG prctl setting, which will cleanly kill
     itself upon its parent's death.
   * Fix for the support of PPC64 compressed kdumps, a regression that was
     introduced in crash-6.0.3 when support for 32-bit PPC compressed kdumps
     was implemented.  Without the patch, the crash session fails to
   * Fix for the x86_64 "bt" command to prevent the possible skipping of the
     stack frame just above an exception frame that indicates "[exception RIP:
     unknown or invalid address]".  This highly-unlikely event could occur if
     the kernel jumps to a bogus text location and attempts to execute it, or
     if the exception occurs in vmalloc space that was allocated with
     module_alloc() by a systemtap kprobe-handler, and therefore has no
     symbolic reference.
