s-c-kdump should be able to set crashkernel=auto option.

Description of problem:
s-c-kdump should be able to set crashkernel=auto option. The same way like in RHEL6.
Is this where we're intending this feature to live for this release, and we're intending for 'auto' to be the proper setting for the forseeable future?
I have discussed it with kexec-tools guys and 'auto' option is valid for RHEL 7.
Fixed in system-config-kdump-2.0.10-2.el7
Reproduced in system-config-kdump-2.0.9-1.el7 and verified in system-config-kdump-2.0.10-2.el7.
I tried and it worked to have set crashkernel=auto in grub.cfg, but i saw in var/log messages: "crashkernel: memory value expected" so either everything is not 100% ok, or that message should not be generated.
Also, system-config-kdump crash if crashkernel=auto in grub.cfg !
fc20 64 bit last month.
