[PATCH] x86-64: setup saved_max_pfn correctly (kdump)
x86_64: setup saved_max_pfn correctly 2.6.19-rc4 has broken CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP support on x86_64. It is impossible to read out the kernel contents from /proc/vmcore because saved_max_pfn is set to zero instead of the max_pfn value before the user map is setup. This happens because saved_max_pfn is initialized at parse_early_param() time, and at this time no active regions have been registered. save_max_pfn is setup from e820_end_of_ram(), more exact find_max_pfn_with_active_regions() which returns 0 because no regions exist. This patch fixes this by registering before and removing after the call to e820_end_of_ram(). Signed-off-by: Magnus Damm <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <firstname.lastname@example.org>
