Subject[PATCH v2 11/20] vmcore: allocate per-cpu crash_notes objects on page-size boundary
Date
To satisfy mmap()'s page-size boundary requirement, allocate per-cpu
crash_notes objects on page-size boundary.

/proc/vmcore on the 2nd kernel checks if each note objects is
allocated on page-size boundary. If there's some object not satisfying
the page-size boundary requirement, /proc/vmcore doesn't provide
mmap() interface.
