Subject[PATCH] kexec: Update vmcoreinfo after crash happened
Date
Currently vmcoreinfo data is updated at boot time subsys_initcall(),
it has the risk of being modified by some wrong code during system
is running.

As a result, vmcore dumped will contain the wrong vmcoreinfo. Later on,
when using "crash" utility to parse this vmcore, we probably will get
"Segmentation fault".

Based on the fact that the value of each vmcoreinfo stays invariable
once kernel boots up, we safely move all the vmcoreinfo operations into
crash_save_vmcoreinfo() which is called after crash happened. In this
way, vmcoreinfo data correctness is always guaranteed.
