Import patches-unapplied version 1:1.5.8-4ubuntu1 to ubuntu/wily-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 71f51070d4d4b52e11203705c79ddc0d1ad2a325

New changelog entries:
  * 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 :
      - New kernel hooks are added to create smaller initrd.img files when new
        kernel packages are installed :
      - 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.
      - The KDUMP_KERNEL and KDUMP_INITRD configuration variables are now
        now enabled and use the symbolic links :
      o kdump-config has been adapted to show the symbolic link information

      doesn't care about zero page filtering.

      in the header of dumpfiles if ENOSPC occurs. The flags make crash utility
      attempt analyzing the dumpfile even it is known to be incomplete.

New changelog entries:
  * [ Juerg Haefliger <email address hidden> ]
    Make the dumping of dmesg configurable
    Dumping the dmesg buffer has shown to be problematic when kernels
    change. This patch introduces a new config variable that can turn
    the dmesg dump off. The default behaviour unchanged, i.e., the
    dmesg buffer is dumped.
