kmsg_dump: add kmsg_dump() calls to the reboot, halt, poweroff and emergency_restart...
Seiji Aguchi [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:59:30 +0000 (16:59 -0800)]
We need to know the reason why system rebooted in support service.
However, we can't inform our customers of the reason because final
messages are lost on current Linux kernel.

This patch improves the situation above because the final messages are
saved by adding kmsg_dump() to reboot, halt, poweroff and
emergency_restart path.
