Since the errata is waiting release, please ask partners to verify this ASAP. Thanks.

Tatsukawa-san, we're looking for a system with 1TB memory. Can you or someone from NEC test this so we can publish the errata?
If you have questions, please contact CAI Qian <firstname.lastname@example.org>. He's in Red Hat China and is the QA lead on kdump testing...
From https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=585979#c23, NEC has verified this bug. Thanks.
