static void *kdump_buf_page;
* copy_oldmem_page - copy one page from "oldmem"
* @pfn: page frame number to be copied
* @buf: target memory address for the copy; this can be in kernel address
* space or user address space (see @userbuf)
* @csize: number of bytes to copy
* @offset: offset in bytes into the page (based on pfn) to begin the copy
* @userbuf: if set, @buf is in user address space, use copy_to_user(),
* otherwise @buf is in kernel address space, use memcpy().
* Copy a page from "oldmem". For this page, there is no pte mapped
* in the current kernel. We stitch up a pte, similar to kmap_atomic.
* Calling copy_to_user() in atomic context is not desirable. Hence first
* copying the data to a pre-allocated kernel page and then copying to user
* space in non-atomic context.
