Maybe this should be for RHEL 7 as I doubt we ever used 'nfs4' in fedora kexec-tools the way we still use in RHEL 6.

Do let me know.

Rather than calling out 'nfs4' as an invalid config option within
kdump.conf, it would be ideal to label it as "deprecated" as its no

beforehand hence no special care needs to taken with respect to NFS

Only when opting for dracut_args, one can specify the NFS version
