Bug#623177: linux-2.6: Please enable CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP on x86 architectures

Source: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Now that we ship debug info, missing CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP=y is the only
thing preventing users of stock Debian kernels from easily taking crash
dumps with makedumpfile/kdump-tools and analyzing them with the crash

I have built a kernel with the attached patch (against
dists/sid/linux-2.6/debian) to verify that it builds and that it allows
makedumpfile to successfuly take a crash dump.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: wheezy/sid
  APT prefers unstable
  APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
Architecture: amd64 (x86_64)

Kernel: Linux 2.6.38-1-amd64 (SMP w/2 CPU cores)
Locale: LANG=en_US.utf8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.utf8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash
