Comment 1 Natalie Protasevich 2008-02-03 01:04:48 UTC
From Dhaval:
I can't seem to get the latest -mm (2.6.24-rc6-mm1) to boot with
kexec. It just gets stuck at "Starting new kernel".

It does boot normally when booted as the first kernel.

I went ahead and did the bisect, and

commit 7dd838ea7afa42a8840cf0e262d5892346ecf379
Author: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

is the first bad commit.
Comment 2 Dhaval Giani 2008-02-03 05:35:21 UTC
I believe this was fixed by H Peter Anvin in a follow up patch.
Comment 3 Natalie Protasevich 2008-02-03 11:16:57 UTC
