The ia64 kdump patch is in 2 parts.

the kexec-kdump-ia64-2.6.16.patch should apply on top of the previous 
kexec patch by Khalid in Tony's test tree.

the kexec-tools-kdump-ia64.patch should apply to kexec-tools-1.101
with kexec-tools-1.101-kdump.patch

To test it.
Build first SMP kernel with KEXEC and KDUMP enabled.

Boot it with kernel parameter "crashkernel=XXX@YYY"
means reserver XXX from YYY for crashdumping.
Build an UP kernel with KEXEC KDUMP VMCORE enabled.
load this kernel as a crashdumping kernel
kexec -p vmlinux.gz --initrd=initrd --append="...."

trigger a crash,
maybe "echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger"
after the crash kernel boots,
cp /proc/vmcore core

gdb first_kernel_vmlinux core

please test and review.
