To be honest, I'd be happier if the DIF_NET flag disappeared entirely.
It seems to me that dumpsys shouldn't need knowledge of disk geometry
-- especially now when there may not be a disk at all. It seems to me
that the correct interface would be for dumpsys to pass the offset
into the core file to the dumper, and the dumper should convert that
to a value appropriate for the dump device.
