Mahesh Salgaonkar - Sept. 29, 2011, 3:09 p.m.
From: Mahesh Salgaonkar <mahesh@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

This patch introduces an sysfs interface '/sys/kernel/fadump_release_mem' to
invalidate the last fadump registration, invalidate '/proc/vmcore', release
the reserved memory for general use and re-register for future kernel dump.
Once the dump is copied to the disk, the userspace tool will echo 1 to
'/sys/kernel/fadump_release_mem'.

Release the reserved memory region excluding the size of the memory required
for future kernel dump registration.

Change in v2:
- Introduced cpu_notes_buf_free() function to free memory allocated for
  cpu notes buffer.
