You should be able to leverage most of the code from palo.
Note that palo runs in th CPU in real-mode - not virtual mode.
You might consider doing the same for the dump code and just
be *very* careful about which functions you call.

Oh, and the dump path might want to do two other things:
2) switch linux console back to PDC console

I don't know if some of those things are already happening.
If I have time, I'll look later.

palo is in CVS on the same server (cvs.parisc-linux.org) as our kernel.
(ie "cvs co palo" instead of linux)
