For the linux parts there is (L?)GPLed code in linux_kdump (the main
reason that it is a port, I think), it is unlikely that someone sits
there and will do a clean-room implementation of those linux-kernel
derived things (I like to get proven wrong, anyone out there accepts
the challenge? ;-) ). Dmitry provided an updated linux-kdump which
contains preprocessed things (no need to have a non-default
linuxulator setup). I have the corresponding PR assigned to me, but
from his comments it looks like his new version depends upon his
changes and does not DTRT without them (I am awaiting confirmation,
and I asked about changes to let it DTRT if this is true).
Commitment can be illustrated by a breakfast of ham and eggs.
The chicken was involved, the pig was committed.
