[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0 of 3] KEXEC: Introduce new crashtables interface (v2)

This patch series implement changes to the kexec system in Xen, both along the
lines of supporting a 32bit crash kernel with 64bit Xen, and providing more
useful information to the crash kernel.

Most of these patches have been submitted upstream in the past; The main new one
is patch 4 which introduces the crashtables mechanism of passing information to
the crashdump kernel using ELF CORE notes.  The set of patches (ported to
xen-4.1) have been tested against a wide range of hardware.

Changes since v1:
 *  Drop the top-of-mem patch.  It was convaing information very similar
    information to other memory variables, in a less sensible way.  Therefore,
    use max_page in preference.
