Carving out a 100MB coredump diagnostic partition?

I have a large datastore that is using up the entirety of a disk. I have VMs on the single partition.

When I did this, I didn't realize I needed to create a coredump diagnostic partition. I'd like to know if I can carve out 100MB equivalent of so many sectors at the end of the partition and then use that area to create a coredump partition?

FWIW:

~ # partedUtil get "/vmfs/devices/disks/naa.6c81f660ef0d23001ae6c4b507873c57"

364456 255 63 5854986240

1 2048 5854986206 0 0

I'm aware of the ability to put the coredump on a USB connected disk, but I'd rather keep my USB passthrough option.

I'm happy to entertain other options.
