Description:

This update for kdump fixes the following issues:

  • Fixes an issue where kdump failed when a crash is triggered after CPU hot removal (bsc#1133407)

  • Fixes an issue where kdump crashed after booting the OS (bsc#1021484, bsc#1080953)
  • Added ':force' as an option to KDUMP_NETCONFIG to force network setup in kdump. This is needed to configure fence_kdump (bsc#1108919)
  • Improved the handling of NSS (bsc#1021846)
  • Fixes an issue where the kdump mount points were not unmounted before switching to system root. This could lead to devices being busy during system shutdown (bsc#1102252, bsc#1125011)
  • Fixes multipath configuration with user_friendly_names or aliases (bsc#1111207)
  • There's now a fallback to re-register FADUMP from userspace if the kernel is not able to do it (bsc#1108170)
  • Added a better fallback solution when Kernel signature is missing (bsc#1080916)
  • Fixed an issue where KDUMPTOOL_FLAGS has been passed several times to the command line on kdump restart (bsc#1072584)
