Public bug reported: When kdump-tools is installed, it creates an initrd for the running kernel. For kernels installed after that, the postinst part will be run and a initrd will be created as well. However, for kernels that are already installed, it won't create them.
As an example, when the user is running 4.4.0-112-generic, but has 4.13.0-32-generic installed, kdump-tools will create an initrd for 4.4.0-112-generic. When the user later reboots into 4.13.0-32-generic, the initrd is not present, and kdump-tools won't load.
