Subject[PATCH 5.15 062/128] kernel/crash_core: suppress unknown crashkernel parameter warning
From: Philipp Rudo <>

[ Upstream commit 71d2bcec2d4d69ff109c497e6611d6c53c8926d4 ]

When booting with crashkernel= on the kernel command line a warning
similar to

Kernel command line: ro console=ttyS0 crashkernel=256M
Unknown kernel command line parameters "crashkernel=256M", will be passed to user space.

is printed.

This comes from crashkernel= being parsed independent from the kernel
parameter handling mechanism. So the code in init/main.c doesn't know
that crashkernel= is a valid kernel parameter and prints this incorrect

Suppress the warning by adding a dummy early_param handler for
