How do debug the kdump kernel using a Xen dump-core file?

Ah, I misunderstood. So you are running an HVM guest which has kdump
enabled, the guest has crashed, and now you want to look at the guest's
Anyway, like I mentioned in my last message, you *may* be able to coerce
it into running by adding the --machdep physbase=<physical-address> option.
And that would only be possible if it's an x86_64 guest. I'm not sure
what the <physical-address> value should be in that case, so you would
have to experiment.
Normally people don't have much interest in debugging the kdump kernel...
