Hello Jozef,

Thanks for doing this again. It is coming in right shape.

In addition to Bernhard's comments, I would like to say that "Dump Filtering"
looks the right tittle for this setting. I don't think the "General" screen
is needed. We can put the Dump format (ie whether ELF or compressed) as part
of the Dump filtering. The reason is that this also is set by makedumpfile
utility. So, please have the dump filtering screen as

+--- Dump Filter  Settings ------------------------------------+
|                                                              |
| +-- Exclude from Dumping -----------------------+            |
| |  [] Pages filled with zero                    |            |
| |  [] Cache Pages                               |            |
| |    [] Cache Private Pages                     |            |
| |  [] User Data Pages                           |            |
| |  [] Free Pages                                |            |
| +-----------------------------------------------+            |
|                                                              |
| +-- Dump Format---------------------------------+            |
| |   o ELF Format                                |            |
| |   o Compressed Format                         |            |
| +-----------------------------------------------+            |
|                                                              |
+--------------------------------------------------------------+


Once we have this, we can also move the option of
"Enable Immediate Reboot After Saving the Core" to kdump expert settings.
This should allow us to get rid of "General" settings.


+--- Kdump Expert Settings -------------------------------------+
|                                                               |
| +-- Kdump kernel version -----------------------------------+ |
| |   +----------------------+                                | |
| |   |                      |                                | |
| |   +----------------------+                                | |
| +-----------------------------------------------------------+ |
|                                                               |
| +-- Kdump kernel command line ------------------------------+ |
| |   +----------------------+                                | |
| |   |                      |  [] Append                     | |
| |   +----------------------+                                | |
| +-----------------------------------------------------------+ |
|                                                               |
| +-- Kdump kernel Run level ---------------------------------+ |
| |   +--------------------+--+                               | |
| |   |1 - Single User Mode| V|  [] Enable Immediate Reboot   | |
| |   +--------------------+--+     After Saving the dump     | |
| |                                                           | |
| +-----------------------------------------------------------+ |
|                                                               |
| +-- Number of Dumps to preserve  ---------------------------+ |
| |   [] Enable deleting Old Dumps                            | |
| |    +--------------------+--+                              | |
| |    | 5                  | V|                              | |
| |    +--------------------+--+                              | |
| +-----------------------------------------------------------+ |
|                                                               |
+---------------------------------------------------------------+


And please do the "Dump Target" settings as Bernhard has shown in his figures.

Thanks
Maneesh
