[RFC] [PATCH 0/2] s390: SCSI dump kernel and userspace application

From: Michael Holzheu
Date: Wed Feb 21 2007 - 08:38:47 EST

s390 machines (z900 or higher) provide hardware support for creating Linux
dumps on SCSI disks. Our current implementation consists of a userspace
application running on an special Linux dump kernel, which exploits the
s390 hardware support. Since both parts (kernel and userspace) belong
together, we would like to put the application code in the Linux source tree
under "arch/s390". Currently we have a dependency on the libc of the
target system. Klibc would be a nice solution for that. Are there currently
any plans for upstream klibc?

* Patch 2 implements the kernel support (zcore character device)
* Patch 3 implements the userspace part, which resides in arch/s390

For more information please refer to Documentation/s390/zfcpdump.txt,
which is contained in patch 2.
