Somehow or another, I wasn't even aware that was there. I could have
sworn I looked... But yeah, that stuff is a bit dated, and for some
reason wants to split up i386 and x86_64, even though the process is
identical for all platforms we ship FC for.

Side note: ia64 already has relocatable kernel support (so no -kdump
kernel needed), plus some ia64 memory alignment quirks make it a bit
different... But we don't have a formal FC ia64 release anyhow. :)

Sounds good to me.

Two minor corrections need to be made. Before both the grub.conf and
yaboot.conf examples, it says "with kexec options added". There are no
options needed for kexec alone, the options are kdump-specific, so that
should be "with kdump options added".

Other than that, lookin' good.

Thanks much,
