This should be easy to convert for my changes. Do you intend to only support minidumps or will you also support full dumps at some point?

Also, FYI, in my branch some of the boilerplate will go away (all the hpte stuff is now shared for example).

I have no immediate plans to support full dumps.

FWIW I have no problem with us supporting only minidumps.

Mostly just curious. We did have a few panics at Y! for which full dumps were useful (you could examine user memory), but those are generally rare.

jhb edited edge metadata.
