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.

Am I right, Horms?

kexec-tools support multiboot format these days. So if kexec is added to Xen then we should support kexec'ing to Xen, or we need a good explanation why we can't.

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