It seems it's the only array we have there. swapper_pg_dir is a potential
candidate, but it's 'unsigned long' on arm.

Below it patch with corrected macro name.

Please, consider applying.

Subject: [PATCH] kdump: Write a correct address of mem_section into vmcoreinfo

Depending on configuration mem_section can now be an array or a pointer
to an array allocated dynamically. In most cases, we can continue to refer
to it as 'mem_section' regardless of what it is.

But there's one exception: '&mem_section' means "address of the array" if
mem_section is an array, but if mem_section is a pointer, it would mean
"address of the pointer".

We've stepped onto this in kdump code. VMCOREINFO_SYMBOL(mem_section)
writes down address of pointer into vmcoreinfo, not array as we wanted.

Let's introduce VMCOREINFO_SYMBOL_ARRAY() that would handle the
situation correctly for both cases.
