crash: page excluded: kernel virtual address: ffffffff81587180 type: "cpu_possible_mask"

I installed "kernel-debug-debuginfo-2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64.rpm" and its dependend packages. kernel verion of vm is 2.6.32-504.


I had the same problem on 7.1.5-2.el7:

crash: page excluded: kernel virtual address: ffffffff818129b0 type: >"cpu_possible_mask"

and upgrading crash version to crash 7.2.3-8.el7 helped.
