Hello bugproxy, or anyone else affected, Accepted makedumpfile into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/makedumpfile/1:1.6.3-2~16.04.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.
Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users. If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed. Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping! N.B.

That may change some day, so it would be best to let the kernel decide what value it should use. If the value does change and the kernel is not allowed to choose a value, this may stop the kernel from booting on a production system. [Test Case] Run `cat /etc/default/grub.d/kdump-tools.cfg` * Expected result: there is no offset specified at the end of the line (.e.g, @128M). * Actual result: For Xenial, Bionic, Disco, and Eoan there are offsets specified. [Regression Potential] * Right now, the offset described in the kdump-tools.cfg aligns with that of what the kernel would select, so since they are the same we would expect no change in operation. Original bug description follows: ----------------------------------------- == Comment: #0 - Hari Krishna Bathini <hbath...@in.ibm.com> - 2018-01-08 01:06:41 == ---Problem Description--- A default offset of 128MB is enforced for crashkernel by kdump-tools utility overriding the kernel default. While the kernel default offset for crashkernel is also 128MB, that may change and the right thing to do would be to let the kernel decide on the offset of crashkernel in the default scenario..
