As I can see you taken some sugestions into account. Thanks. But...
Why did not you send this patch series to kexec@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
and my Oracle address? Why did not you implemented kexec hypercall
function to get info about loaded images? Andrew and I asked about that.
What about setting GPRs to known value (e.g. 0 like in Linux Kernel)
before jumping into purgatory?

By the way, you do not need to save and restore %rdi, %rsi and %rbx
in relocate_pages() in xen/arch/x86/x86_64/kexec_reloc.S.
