Bug Description

This is likely a duplicate of #364414 but I wanted to make sure that all the information about my system is attached.

This is a fresh karmic install (from todays daily) with 386, i965 and no proprietary kernel modules. The linux-crashdump
stuff is not working, the error is:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/kdump start
 * Loading crashkernel... Memory for crashkernel is not reserved
Please reserve memory by passing "crashkernel=X@Y" parameter to the kernel
Then try loading kdump kernel

$ cat /proc/cmdline
root=UUID=42dfb8ca-e670-4413-98b3-4ad6641705e6 ro crashkernel=384M-2G:64M@16M,2G-:128M@16M

Please let me know if there is anything more that you need.
