Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [PATCH]: kexec: framework and i386 (Take VI)


I tested about NMI button with your patch.
I got coredump including all memory!
We always use dom0's coredump by using Horms's and Magnus's patch. :-)

FYI, I used the following grub.conf 
and /proc/sys/kernel/unknown_nmi_panic=1

title Xen 3.0 kexec
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /xen-3.0.gz dom0_mem=256M kdump_megabytes=64 
kdump_megabytes_base=32 nmi=dom0 nosmp
        module /vmlinuz-2.6-xen ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb nosmp
        module /initrd-2.6-xen.img
