Hi Andy,

Any decision for this bug? Is it ok to have "crashkernel=384M-:256M"?

  [Hyper-V] Unable to perform a full kernel crash on Ubuntu 14.10

Bug description:
  System details:
  Linux ubuntu 3.16.0-9-generic #14-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 15 15:03:57 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  Ubuntu Server 14.10 Daily build from 19th Aug (first build picked up for testing)

  We have followed the steps at
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/CrashdumpRecipe to configure kdump on a
  Generation 1 VM.

  kdump is loaded and when we trigger the crash, a kernel panic is

  1. The vmcore/crash file is not generated under /var/crash as configured in the kdump config.
  2. The VM will hang and not reboot.  Default action to take in case of a failure is to reboot - again as set in kdump config.

  Repro rate: 100%
  VM settings: tests ran with 1 CPU core or 4 cores.
  Negociated VMBus is 3.0, which has been integrated since 14.04 so this should work as no other patches are needed. (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1317697)

  I'm also attaching the serial console output of both cases - single
  core and SMP.

  root@ubuntu:~# kdump-config  load
  efi memory descriptor version 0 is not supported!
   * loaded kdump kernel

  root@ubuntu:~# cat /sys/kernel/kexec_crash_loaded
