Bug description:
  This, at least, causes kdump-tools to load only after some timeout. It
  could be loaded much earlier.

  kdump-tools only requires the network to be online when it's
  configured to dump to ssh or nfs, and only when dumping, not when

  We should have three services/units here:

  1) the loading service, does not require network;
  2) the dumping service, that works for local dumps, does not require network;
  3) the dumping service, that works remotely, requires network.

  Now, as per LP#1681909, maybe we should not require network-online,
  but use some other way to verify that the host where we want to dump
  is online, given a certain (configured) timeout.
