Thanks for your patch, there is a great performance improvement, very
impressive!

That's a very helpful suggestion, I will try it again with LZO/snappy

Yes, I added them together, the following is one dump message log:
<Log>
makedumpfile -c --message-level 23 -d 31 --map-size 10240 /proc/vmcore
/sysroot/var/crash/vmcore_10240
