    Hi Eric,

    Currently I am testing your patches on i386. With CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y
    kernel boots fine and kexec also works.

    But my kernel hangs on kexec on panic case. It hangs early in
    decompress_kernel(). Kernel hangs at following condition.

    + if (((u32)output - CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START) & 0x3fffff)
    + error("Destination address not 4M aligned");

    I have reserved 64MB at 16M and kernel is loaded at 16M.

    I had expected that I would get "Destination address not 4M aligned" on
    serial console but did not happen. Had to put outb() to get to this point.

    Will look more into it.

    Thanks
    Vivek
