Description Andrew Lukoshko 2012-12-11 14:57:03 MSK
Update for kexec-tools from RHEL6 upstream.

Advisory:
* Previously, the kexec utility incorrectly recognized the Xen DomU (HVM) guest
as the Xen Dom0 management domain. Consequently, the kernel terminated
unexpectedly and the kdump utility generated the vmcore file with no NT_PRSTATUS
notes. The crash also led to NULL pointer dereference. With this update, kexec
collects positions and sizes of NT_PRSTATUS from
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuN/crash_notes on Xen DomU and from /proc/iomem on Xen
Dom0. As a result, the crashes no longer occur.
