Re: [patch 2/3] IA64: log insertion of crashkernel region

Hi,

Here is a minor update to this patch, which makes the use
of log priorities more consistent.

This patch adds a faclilty to print out a message regarding the success or
failure of inserting the crashkernel region. On systems with a large
ammount of memory, the chances of failure tend to be quite low, especially
now that the base address of the region can be determined by the kernel.
However, on systems with less memory, such as Xen's Domain 0, it
can occur, and silently failing is confusing to say the least.

It also updates the error message generated by kdump_find_rsvd_region()
if it can't locate a base address for the requested crashkernel region,
which is really just another failure mode for the problem detailed
in the paragraph above.

* Update 
  - Consistently use KERN_WARNING for errors/warnings (which are not
    critical) and ERN_INFO for logging success
