ipv6 support for link-local addresses
Last modified: 2017-11-15 00:45:22 EST
Description of problem:
Now we only support the non-local scope ipv6 protocol. Track the ipv6 new feature to support local scope ipv6 protocol.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
When dumping to ssh via local ipv6 address, the ssh parameter
in kdump.conf is supposed to have the form like
where "%eth0" is an existing network interface supporting ipv6.
However, the get_remote_host function in kdump-lib.sh currently
doesn't remove the network interface in the ipv6 address,
causing the ip command in kdump_install_net function to fail,
leading to a "Bad kdump location" message.
