[PATCH v3 07/21] vmcore,procfs: introduce a flag to distinguish objects copied in 2nd kernel

From: HATAYAMA Daisuke
Date: Mon Mar 18 2013 - 22:30:46 EST

The part of dump target memory is copied into the 2nd kernel if it
doesn't satisfy mmap()'s page-size boundary requirement. To
distinguish such copied object from usual old memory, a flag
MEM_TYPE_CURRENT_KERNEL is introduced. If this flag is set, the object
is considered being copied into buffer on the 2nd kernel.
