Bug ID: 1019590
Summary: kdump crash simulation cause root FS corruption
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.2
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
Assignee: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

1. Install and setup kdump
2. Press Alt + SysRQ + C to simulate a crash
==> kdump will start collecting dump but instead of write it into defined place
it will start fsck to check root fs .
- dump not written into /var/crash
- root fs contain serious errors which not allowed me to boot system until I
fix them with manual fsck execution on detached root fs

Was able to reproduce this two times in a row IMO this allow to exclude
possibility that I had corrupted fs before simulation of crash.
