Sorry for late jump in, the patches can not apply on top of latest
kdumpctl, probably it has changed since your post.
Please see a few comments in other reply for the code itself.
I think very soon two more patch series will go in. Bao's cleanup for
determining disk based on "path" and Martin's patches for generic
