Comment 4 Ziyue Yang 2017-07-18 00:44:50 EDT
When dumping to ssh via local ipv6 address, the ssh parameter
in kdump.conf is supposed to have the form like

ssh user@fe80::cc1:8bff:fe90:b95f%eth0

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.
