[PATCH 04/13] vmcore: introduce types for objects copied in 2nd kernel

From: HATAYAMA Daisuke
Date: Thu Feb 14 2013 - 05:12:16 EST

Some parts of old memory need to be copied in buffers on 2nd kernel to
be remapped to user-space. To distinguish objects in the buffer on 2nd
kernel and the ones on old memory, enum vmcore_type is introduced: the
object in the buffer on 2nd kernel has VMCORE_2ND_KERNEL type, and the
one on old memory has VMCORE_OLD_MEMORY type.
