The 'action' part of kexec is very arch specific, and the Xen
environment make it easily to implement. We don't have to wory about
shutting down virtual devices or such like as they will recover

Knocking up an arch xen kexec should be easy.

We could implement the system call in arch Xen even though it isn't in
the mainstream kernel yet.
