I can do further research but welcome others' insight: do others have
advice on how best to collect a crashed kvm guest's core?

I don't know what you do in libvirt, but you can start a gdbstub in QEMU, connect with gdb, and then have gdb dump out a core.

It will be interesting to look at your results with 2.6.25.x kernels with
kvm module inserted. Currently I can't think what can possibly be wrong.

If the host's 2.6.25.4 kernel has both the kvm and kvm-intel modules
loaded kexec/kdump does _not_ work (simply hangs the system).  If I
only have the kvm module loaded kexec/kdump works as expected
(likewise if no kvm modules are loaded at all).  So it would appear
that kvm-intel and kexec are definitely mutually exclusive at the
moment (at least on both 2.6.22.x and 2.6.25.x).
