The following series of patches implement a basic framework
for hypervisor-assisted dump. The very first patch provides
documentation explaining what this is :-). Yes, its supposed
to be an improvement over kdump.
The patches mostly sort-of work; a list of open issues
is inculded in the documentation. It also appears that
the not-yet-released firmware versions this was tested
on are still, ahem, incomplete; this work is also pending.
