Description

LSAC(v2)
This update provides support for LZO compressed kdump files. In addition, crash has been updated to 6.0.7 which includes the following enhancements: * Enhanced the search command to allow the searched-for value to be entered as a crash (expression) or a kernel symbol name * Added a new "search -t" option that will restrict the search to the kernel stack pages of all tasks. * Fix for the s390x "bt -[tT]" options when run on an active task on a live system * Fix for s390x "vm -p" option, which may show invalid user to physical address translation data if a page is not mapped. * Added new "vm -[xd]" options to be used in conjunction with "vm -[mv]", which override the current default output format with hexadecimal or decimal format for just the command instance. * Fix for the s390x "vm -p" command and "vtop -u " commands to properly translate pages that are swapped out into their swap file and offset. Without the patch, the swap file and offset would not be displayed. * Add support to for reading dumpfiles compressed by LZO using makedumpfile version 1.4.4 or later. * Added a new "printm" command to the embedded gdb module * Added a new "runq -t" option that displays the timestamp information Added a new "runq -t" option that displays the timestamp information of each cpu's runqueue, which consists of either the rq.clock, the rq.most_recent_timestamp or rq.timestamp_last_tick value, whichever applies. Following each cpu timestamp is the last_run or timestamp value of the active task on that cpu, whichever applies, along with the task identification.
