  Typo in error msg when no crashkernel memory reservation is set

Status in makedumpfile source package in Xenial:

Status in makedumpfile source package in Zesty:

Status in makedumpfile package in Debian:

Bug description:

   * There is a typo in ERRMSG of function show_mem_usage affecting
  Xenial/Zesty, Debian and makedumpfile upstream.

  This should be :
  "show_mem_usage: No memory is reserved for crashkernel!"

  instead of :
  "show_mem_usage: No memory is reserved for crashkenrel!"

  The typo is located here in src code :

  # filename : makedumpfile.c
          int show_mem_usage(void)
           uint64_t vmcoreinfo_addr, vmcoreinfo_len;
           struct cycle cycle = {0};

           if (!is_crashkernel_mem_reserved()) {
                 ==>  ERRMSG("No memory is reserved for crashkenrel!\n");
                   return FALSE;

  [Test Case]

   * Take a system with no crashkernel memory reservation set
   * run command : makedumpfile --mem-usage /proc/kcore

   * Error message :
  show_mem_usage: No memory is reserved for crashkenrel!

  [Regression Potential]

   * No regression, it is a trivial change with no behavioural change.

  [Other Info]

  * Upstream:
  Patch has been submitted upstream (ML :ke...@lists.infradead.org) 
  - AFAIK, there is no upstream bug database, so no URL available, ML only.
  - Patch will be merge in upstream version 1.6.2 # See comment #4
