FreeBSD SysVR4 Emulation

Mark Newton,

svr4_kdump ideas

I've had an idea of getting the syscall#->syscallname and ioctl#->ioctlname translations out of a config file so that pointing the same kdump executable at different config files can allow it to dump syscall traces from different emulators.

Once that has been done, the next step would be to hack kernfs to make the translation information available in /kern in the same format, obviating the need to hand-write a config file. After all, the translation data is in the kernel already, there's no point duplicating it in ktrace/kdump.

In the meantime, I have a mostly complete port of linux_kdump for SysVR4 emulation. Email me if you want to finish work on it.
