I'm fine either way as long as there is a reasonable automated way to
pass this information to the capture kernel.

It is possible for the bsp to change from boot to boot. So checking
the initial apic id of the bsp each boot will be necessary. If it
changes the kdump initrd would need to change, correct?
If yes, it would be good if the scripts can cache prior boot value
of bsp and avoid rebuilding the kdump initrd if the bsp doesn't change.
