Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [PATCH]: kexec: framework and i386 (Take VIII)


No, it can kexec only to kdump kernel.
I think we need to update kexec-tools for kexecing Xen.
(e.g. to load xen,dom0 and initrd)
Am I right, Horms?

But this feature is good as coredump feature.
Even if cannot kexec to Xen, I believe this is important feature.
