Bug description:

   * The value chosen for ppc64el of 128MB aligns with that of the
  kernel default. 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..

  Get rid of "@128M" in kdump-tools.cfg file

  Contact Information = hbath...@in.ibm.com

  ---uname output---

  Machine Type = na

  A debugger is not configured

  ---Steps to Reproduce---
   # cat /etc/default/grub.d/kdump-tools.cfg

  The offset is specified via kdump-tools where as the kernel may be the right 
place to
  set an offset by default..

  Userspace tool common name: kdump-tools

  The userspace tool has the following bit modes: 64-bit

  Userspace rpm: kdump-tools

  Userspace tool obtained from project website:  na

  *Additional Instructions for hbath...@in.ibm.com:
  -Attach ltrace and strace of userspace application.
