According to your description, it seems that the patch is v9. In fact, there is only
different the content of header file between [patch v8 RESEND 4/4] and [patch v9 4/4].

I have tested the patch again based on upstream 4.19.0-rc6, it works very well.

I'm not sure whether your machine has also SME feature. If it has no SME feature and
previously kdump could work well, after we apply these patches, kdump should be able
to work properly too. I suggest a comparison test for them. Because it is similar to
the situation that SME is disabled.

If your machine has SME feature and SME is also enabled, these patches should be applied
before we test kdump, otherwise kdump won't work.

This was your command that loaded crash kernel and initrd:
# ~/bpetkov/bin/sbin/kexec -p /boot/vmlinuz-4.19.0-rc6+ --initrd /boot/initrd-4.19.0-rc6+ --command-line="root=/dev/mapper/ubuntu--010236012132--vg-leap15 splash=silent showopts console=ttyS5,115200 console=tty0 debug ignore_loglevel log_buf_len=16M 1 irqpoll maxcpus=1 reset_devices vga=normal"

If this option(CONFIG_AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT_ACTIVE_BY_DEFAULT) was not enabled by default,
that just tested the case which SME was disabled(because it had no "mem_encrypt=on"
in the kernel command-line). As previously mentioned, maybe it is necessary to do
a comparison test for them.

I have no test environment for Ubuntu. Would you like to share the panic log? 

Thanks.
