5.17 Kdump to ssh target failed with Oracle Linux 7 PVHVM guest

If Kdump is set to an ssh target on an Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 PVHVM guest, running on Oracle VM Release 3.4.4, Kdump fails to connect to the guest operating system. This issue is caused by the kdump service failing to start on the Oracle Linux 7 Update 5 guest operating system.

To workaround this issue, on the guest virtual machine, manually start the kdump service after the operating system boots up using:

# kdumpctl start
