Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [PATCH]: kexec: framework and i386

Hi, Kazuo

Good work!
Could you explain usage of your tool?
For using your tool, do I need xen-syms, vmlinux(with debug option), 
and so on?
Can this tool extract only dom0 from coredump file?
Can this tool also extract xen or domU?

Best Regards,

Akio Takebe
