--- background ----------------------------------------------------
* what the makedumpfile is:
  To shorten the size of the dumpfile and the time of creating the
  dumpfile, makedumpfile copies only the necessary pages for analysis
  to the dumpfile from /proc/vmcore. You can specify the kind of
  unnecessary pages with dump_level. If you want to shorten the size
  further, enable the compression of the page data.
* Xen extraction 
  makedumpfile also has a feature that extracting the part of
  xen hypervisor and domain-0 from /proc/vmcore taken under xen
  environment. In most cases under xen environment, it is enough to
  analyze a cause of system crash.
* extract vmcoreinfo from /proc/vmcore
  makedumpfile 1.2.0 supports to extract the vmcoreinfo data from
  /proc/vmcore and uses it for dump filtering. (for a vmcore taken
  under the native environment.)
