netdump does not start without NETDUMPADDR

Description of problem:
Per netdump documentation, netdump should be able to start with only
a SYSLOGADDR, and a NETDUMPADDR should not be required to log kernel
oops to remote syslog server.
However, after spcifying remote SYSLOGADDR in /etc/sysconfig/netdump,
netdump fails to start with error "Server address not specified
in /etc/sysconfig/netdump" and netconsole driver cannot be manually
loaded from command line.
I believe the problem could be fixed if the /etc/rc.d/init.d/netdump
did not fail after check for the NETDUMPADDR variable in all cases.
Please see bug 97663 for additional details.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.echo "SYSLOGADDR=172.16.10.1" >> /etc/sysconfig/netdump
2.start syslogd on 172.16.10.1 with -r -x
3.service netdump start
