Kernel netdump project

Status: Committed to SVN in r333283 and nearby commits.

Netdump provides kernel core dumping over the network, instead of to a local disk. It implements a very minimal UDP/IPv4 stack and uses a custom UDP protocol to transmit the dump to the netdump server running on another host.

Netdump should find use in diskless workstation clusters, PXE-booted test machines, and perhaps when doing disk driver development.


Enhancement ideas
