crosscrash is an unfinished tool, though interesting.
One of the major drawbacks is its inability to open dumps from big-
endian architectures on little-endian hosts, most importantly s390x
dumps on x86_64.

crosscrash is already on the SLES11 media (with all the implications
such as L3 support). Bernhard's original idea was to replace crash with
crosscrash completely, so it made sense to include it in SLES.
On the other hand, the tool would be useful primarily to companies like
Intel, IBM, HP, and SGI. AFAIK none of them would object to having
crosscrash only in SDK.
In short, I don't have strong opinion about SLES/SDK question.

Mike, Petr, go ahead.

#9: Petr Tesařík (ptesarik) (2009-09-22 09:37:07) (reply to #8)
Based on an e-mail conversation with Mike Hager, it's possible to
dedicate the time to do this, so it will be implemented for SLES11SP1.
