    How is the lack of flexibility a problem?
    Specifics please.

    My impression is that the purpose of this patchset is to build
    infrastructure to sort out a conflict between kdb and the kexec code,
    which it does not do, and it can not do if it does not own up to
    it's real purpose.

    If I am correct in understanding the purpose of this patchset it does
    not even address the problem it is aimed at solving.
