The problem is that if the machine crashed anything you try to attempt
before starting the crash kernel is reducing the chance that the crash
kernel actually starts.

Is there something at the root bridge level which allows to tell the
underlying busses to shut up, reset or go into a defined state? That
might avoid chasing lists which might be already unreliable.

Thanks,
