96c4168... by Louis Bouchard on 2016-01-26

Import patches-unapplied version 1:1.5.9-4 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 1042beea2c228fff269bb858e16e8aff87582bf2

New changelog entries:
  * Allow for symlinks to be created for vmlinux files : On Power8
    architecture, systems are booting from a vmlinux file. The symlink
    /var/lib/kdump/vmlinuz has to point to this file. (LP: #1536904)
  * Add functionality to create symlinks for older kernels : If kdump
    is installed on systems with more than one kernel package, the smaller
    initrd.img file will only be created for the latest kernel. Adding the
    'symlinks' functionality will allow for the creation of symlinks to
    older kernels. If the smaller initrd.img file is missing in /var/lib/kdump
    it will be created beforehand. This will be preempted if kdump is already
    loaded. (LP: #1537714)
  * Fix kdump-config manpage : add documentation for the propagate option.
    (LP: #1538148)
  * Improve manpage for kdump-config

Import patches-unapplied version 1:1.5.9-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 71f51070d4d4b52e11203705c79ddc0d1ad2a325

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream version includes :
    o Parallel compression
     - Add the new option "--num-threads" to enable parallel compression
       for faster processing. This option intends parallel compression
       while --split intends parallel i/o, they try to solve different
       bottlenecks.
    o Change the way to choose the non-cyclic mode
     - Add the new option "--work-dir" to specify the directory used to
       store the bitmap. This is the alternative to the combination of
       --non-cyclic and TMPDIR.
    o Support new kernels
     - The supported kernel is updated to 4.2 in this version.

  * Debian specific enhancements :
    - kdump-tools now make use of smaller initrd.img files created in
    /var/lib/kdump. This avoid optential OOM when the size of the initrd.img
    becomes larger (LP: #1496317). Implementation details are :
      o New kernel hooks are added to create smaller initrd.img files when new
        kernel packages are installed :
          /etc/kernel/postrm.d/kdump-tools
          /etc/kernel/postinst.d/kdump-tools
      o kdump-config is responsible for the maintenance of symbolic links used
        to point to the appropriate vmlinuz & initrd files. Link maintenance
        is done at each boot by kdump-config. New links will point to the
        files named after the running kernel.
      o The KDUMP_KERNEL and KDUMP_INITRD configuration variables are now
        now enabled and use the symbolic links :
          /var/lib/kdump/vmlinuz
          /var/lib/kdump/initrd.img
      o kdump-config has been adapted to show the symbolic link information
    - kdump-tools is now enabled by default. When installed a prompt will
      propose to override the default value.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:1.5.8-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: f91bf40ef930c98da10d950a9b68b6d5405813e0

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream version includes :
    o Fair I/O workload assignment for --split
    - Add the new option "--splitblock-size" to specify the permissible
      difference of each splitted dumpfile size. Please note that the
      difference can be larger than the specified size since this feature
      doesn't care about zero page filtering.
    o Make incomplete dumpfile readable
    - DUMP_DH_COMPRESSED_INCOMPLETE or DUMP_ELF_INCOMPLETE flag will be set
      in the header of dumpfiles if ENOSPC occurs. The flags make crash utility
      attempt analyzing the dumpfile even it is known to be incomplete.
    o Support new kernels
    - The supported kernel is updated to 3.19 in this version.
