Build kdump initrd without dracut

a project by ptesarik

Project Description

The kdump plumbing is implemented as a dracut module. The original intention was to reuse the logic that dracut uses to deal with storage and network, but it turns out that kdump needs are often very different, so a lot of time is spent on avoiding dracut features that are undesirable.

early stage kdump support

a project by mbrugger

Project Description

When we experience a early boot crash, we are not able to analyze the kernel dump, as user-space wasn't able to load the crash system. The idea is to make the crash system compiled into the host kernel (think of initramfs) so that we can create a kernel dump really early in the boot process.

The libkdumpfile library includes Python bindings. They are implemented as manually created C code for CPython. This is hard to maintain and/or port to alternative Python implementations.
