This patch series moves the coredump functionality to a separate
file and adds "inline" coredump feature. Inline coredump directly
copies segments from device memory during coredump to userspace.
This avoids extra memory usage at the cost of speed. Recovery is
stalled until all data is read by userspace.
This patchset also includes Sibi Sankar's patch to deal with chunk sizes
lesser than segment size to make inline coredump work for modem.
