Subject: kexec compiled into kernel
Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2008 17:58:47 +0200
Hi 

Is it possible to compile in kernel kexec support? at least for architectures 
where it is well supported.

It is very handy, when Gentoo installed on PC remotely on regular PC, when 
people there just boot CD and set ip, and leave location for few days. 
It is not possible to eject CD on remote PC, cause on reboot BIOS usually 
closing tray. kexec will let to reboot system to newly compiled kernel 
without full reboot, avoiding system to boot from CD again. Remote tech's on 
location can remove CD later, when it is comfortable for them.



Sorry if sent empty message before, clicked on button by mistake.
