Description of problem:
Amazon EC2 C5 cloud complained that VM boot speed is slower than Ubuntu and other distributions, after some debugging, people found that one of the causes is kdump service starts slow, although it is parallel, it affects the speed more or less especially on VMs with few cpus, which is unacceptable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove "crashkernel=X"
2. touch /etc/kdump.conf
3. date; kdumpctl start; date (see the elapsed seconds)
kdump service takes a few seconds to finish and fail.
Even more at the first time, because the new kdump initramfs is generated, then kdump service start fail.
bail out eariler without building/checking any initramfs even at the first time.
