[Test case] After the fix, a dump could be captured on i386. Other arches were tested and worked just as fine. [Regression potential] Systems could fail to have a dump captured, but it was tested to not be the case. =============== After introducing the udev rules to restart kdump-tools service when there is memory or cpu hotplug, it will be restarted during coldplug as well. This will cause the dump capture itself to be interrupted after a crash. When it is restarted and tries to dump again, it will find an existing dump file and will fail to dump. My proposed solution is to use a different systemd service for the real capture.
