  == Comment from Hari Krishna Bathini ==

  There are quite a few commits (all available upstream) that are needed for
  crash tool to work fine. I think the right thing to do here would be to use
  the latest crash tool version 7.2.0 to go with the kernel update. Also, the
  below commit would be needed on top of 7.2.0 crash utility:

    commit c8178eca9c74f81a7f803a58d339635cc152e8d9
    Author: Dave Anderson <ander...@redhat.com>
    Date:   Thu Nov 9 11:39:05 2017 -0500

      Update for support of Linux 4.14 and later PPC64 kernels where the
      hash page table geometry accomodates a larger virtual address range.
      Without the patch, the virtual-to-physical translation of user space
      virtual addresses by "vm -p", "vtop", and "rd -u" may generate an
      invalid translation or otherwise fail.

  Similar thing holds true for makedumpfile tool..

  Thanks
