kdump: append newline to the last lien of vmcoreinfo note
The last line of vmcoreinfo note does not end with \n. Parsing all the lines in note becomes easier if all lines end with \n instead of trying to special case the last line. I know at least one tool, vmcore-dmesg in kexec-tools tree which made the assumption that all lines end with \n. I think it is a good idea to fix it. Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <> Cc: "Eric W.
