Local fix

Problem summary

  • The command sysdumpdev -e returns a huge value for the dump
    size:
    # sysdumpdev -e
    0453-041 Estimated dump size in bytes: 368868827868807822
    
    It should be:
     sysdumpdev -e
    0453-041 Estimated dump size in bytes: 68953414041
    

Problem conclusion

  • Add the check for the argument DMPRTN_ESTIMATE and pass
    the size of the dump information the y4 adapter wants to
    save. Then also check the DMPRTN_START to pass the pointer
    to the y4 crypto adapter idata.
