As the code spans several different trees - xen, kexec-tools, and linux -
it is a little hard to pack into an email. So I have created a page,
which has all the patches, as well as some documentation on how
to build the code, how to run the code, and some of the problems with
Lastly, I should mention that all development has been on a Tiger 2 box.
Testing and development on other platforms would be greatly appreciated.
