[Linux-ia64] INIT switch handler

The init handler in arch/ia64/kernel/mca.c doesn't do anything yet.  Does
anyone have plans for what such a handler should or will do on Linux?

When the init switch is pressed, it causes a reset of the processor(s). The
purpose of the init
switch on Lion is the same as the NMI switch on the IA-32 platforms. The
OS will have to write a handler that will check and see that the init
switch has been pressed and dump the state of the processor and the state
of the system.
 
Thanks,
