makedumpfile (1:1.5.8-4ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  * kdump-tools now make use of smaller initrd.img files created in
    /var/lib/kdump. This avoid optential OOM when the size of the initrd.img
    becomes larger (LP: #1496317).  Implementation details are :

      - New kernel hooks are added to create smaller initrd.img files when new
        kernel packages are installed :

      - kdump-config is responsible for the maintenance of symbolic links used
        to point to the appropriate vmlinuz & initrd files. Link maintenance
        is done at each boot by kdump-config. New links will point to the
        files named after the running kernel.

      - The KDUMP_KERNEL and KDUMP_INITRD configuration variables are now
        now enabled and use the symbolic links :

      o kdump-config has been adapted to show the symbolic link information
