Subject[PATCH v4 3/6] powerpc/fadump: reorganize /sys/kernel/fadump_* sysfs files
Date
As the number of FADump sysfs files increases it is hard to manage all of
them inside /sys/kernel directory. It's better to have all the FADump
related sysfs files in a dedicated directory /sys/kernel/fadump. But in
order to maintain backward compatibility a symlink has been added for every
sysfs that has moved to new location.

As the FADump sysfs files are now part of a dedicated directory there is no
need to prefix their name with fadump_, hence sysfs file names are also
updated. For example fadump_enabled sysfs file is now referred as enabled.

Also consolidate ABI documentation for all the FADump sysfs files in a
single file Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-kernel-fadump.

+ It is used to release the memory reserved by FADump to
