Vivek, currently after saving dump, we do reboot in fadump case too.
"Fadump Operational Flow" section in fadump-howto.txt summarizes the same.
In failure case, fadump also depends on existing error handling mechanism
in kexec-tools package. So, as of now, all the configuration options in
/etc/kdump.conf file apply to fadump as well.
I thought one advantage of fadump was that one does not have to reboot
the system and one can continue to boot. (As firmware has taken care of
quiescing of the system).
So what's the advantage of fadump if we reboot anyway?
