Increase maximum preserved crash dump vmcore file size to 5Gi

The current crashDumpMgr service has several filesystem
protection methods that can result in the auto deletion
of a crashdump vmcore file. One is a hard cap of 3Gi.

This max vmcore size is too small for some applications.
Crash dump vmcore files can get big with servers that have
a lot of memory and big apps.

This update modifies the crashDumpMgr service file
max_size override to 5Gi.

Test Plan:

PASS: Verify change functions as expected
PASS: Verify change is inserted after patch apply
PASS: Verify crash dump under-size threshold handling
PASS: Verify crash dump over-size threshold handling
PASS: Verify change is reverted after patch removal
