kdump initramfs script fails if /boot, /usr/, or /var is a separate partition

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kexec-tools

When /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-bottom/0_kdump is run, only the root partition has been mounted. Since it needs to read /boot/vmcoreinfo-$KVER, run /usr/bin/makedumpfile, and write /var/crash/vmcore and /var/crash/vmcore.log, it will fail if any of those files are on separate partitions.
