Subject[PATCH V5 5/6] riscv: crash_core: Export kernel vm layout, phys_ram_base
Date
These infos are needed by the kdump crash tool. Since these values change
from time to time, it is preferable to export them via vmcoreinfo than to
change the crash's code frequently.

+VA_BITS
+-------
+
+The maximum number of bits for virtual addresses. Used to compute the
+virtual memory ranges.

+PAGE_OFFSET
+-----------
+
+Indicates the virtual kernel start address of direct-mapped RAM region.
+
+phys_ram_base
+-------------
+
+Indicates the start physical RAM address.

+
+Used to get the correct ranges:
+ MODULES_VADDR ~ MODULES_END : Kernel module space.
+ VMALLOC_START ~ VMALLOC_END : vmalloc() / ioremap() space.
+ VMEMMAP_START ~ VMEMMAP_END : vmemmap region, used for struct page array.
+ KASAN_SHADOW_START ~ KASAN_SHADOW_END : kasan shadow space.
+ KERNEL_LINK_ADDR ~ ADDRESS_SPACE_END : Kernel link and BPF space.
