Re: ramoops: is using platform_drivers correct?

You have to define the ramoops platform data at your board file and
pass it to the platform device init.
As these address is different for each SoCs. e.g., x86, and Samsung
ARM SoCs and so on.
I think maybe you use the x86 so define the default x86 ram address
for ramoops and pass it to platform structures.
At office, I will send the sample usage.
