Bug Description

[Impact]
With artful, crashdump worked on the Cavium CRBs, Cavium-based Gigabyte boards and the Qualcomm Amberwing board, but it no longer works with v4.15. While possibly not a regression, crashdump also does not currently work with the HiSilicon D05 board, but does with the proposed fixes.

[Test Case]
sudo apt install linux-crashdump
sudo reboot (needed to add crashkernel= param)
echo 1 | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo c | sudo tee /proc/sysrq-trigger

[Fix]
Fixes are currently staged in linux-next:
09ffcb0d718a0 arm64: acpi: fix alignment fault in accessing ACPI
20d12cf990618 efi/arm: map UEFI memory map even w/o runtime services enabled
3ea86495aef2f efi/arm: preserve early mapping of UEFI memory map longer for BGRT
5bcd44083a082 drivers: acpi: add dependency of EFI for arm64
50d7ba36b916d arm64: export memblock_reserve()d regions via /proc/iomem

[Regression Risk]
Patches are all ARM specific. Tested on 4 ARM platforms - those listed above, as well as the HiSilicon D06. These patches are not sufficient to make kdump on the HiSilicon D06 work - but that's not a regression. However, no kdump-unrelated regressions were noticed on the D06.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1786878

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
