for far to long now I have been tinkering with patches for Kexec for
Xen on IA64. These are part of the work that Magnus Damm and I have been
doing, of which the generic and x86 portions were merged for 3.0.4.
That is, this is hypervisor and domain 0 kdump/kexec, not domain U,
which Gerd Hoffman is working on separately.

Firtsly, before you run off and get too excided, this code is
very beta, perhaps alpha. It needs work. And I am hoping that by posting
the code here, interested parties can help out.

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
the code.


Lastly, I should mention that all development has been on a Tiger 2 box.
Testing and development on other platforms would be greatly appreciated.
