Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Userspace


When the makedumpfile utility is executed to generate core using crash kernel, the utility performs the kernel version check and if the kernel version is not in the expected range then it pints a warning.
makedumpfile-1.4.4 expects the version to be in the range between 2.6.15 to 3.2.16. 

The request is to extend 
to support the kernel version shipped with this Wind River Linux product.

Steps to Reproduce

Linux version 3.10.79-ovp-rt74-WR6.0.0.20_preempt-rt
makedumpfile -E -d $KDUMP_LEVEL /proc/vmcore $KDUMP_COREFILE
The kernel version is not supported.
The created dumpfile may be incomplete.
