s390(x) dump analysis on x86/x86_64 using crosscrash

Description

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.
