Subject: [PATCH] Kdump documentation update for 2.6.20: kexec-tools update
Date: Fri, 12 Jan 2007 15:06:19 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Mohan Kumar suggested making kexec-tools-testing.tar.gz a link
to the latest version. I have done this and this patch updates the
documentation accordingly.

This patch requires the documentation patch update that Vivek Goyal has
been circulating, and I believe is currently in mm. Feel free to fold it
into that change if it makes things easier for anyone.
