No, I load a kdump kernel properly with this command:

kexec -s -p /boot/vmlinuz-5.2.0-rc3+ --initrd=/boot/initrd.img-5.2.0-rc3+ --command-line="maxcpus=1 root=/dev/sda5 ro debug ignore_loglevel
log_buf_len=16M no_console_suspend net.ifnames=0 systemd.log_target=null mem_encrypt=on kvm_amd.sev=1 nr_cpus=1 irqpoll reset_devices vga=normal
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 earlyprintk=serial cgroup_disable=memory mce=off numa=off udev.children-max=2 panic=10 rootflags=nofail acpi_no_memhotplug
transparent_hugepage=never disable_cpu_apicid=0"

And that succeeds judging from

$ grep . /sys/kernel/kexec_*

Then I trigger a panic with

echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

and this is where it hangs and doesn't load the kdump kernel.
