In general, I would rather make the new kernel more tolerant than make
assumptions about how the old kernel shut down. I don't know if
there's an explicit statement of kexec philosophy on this (it'd be
nice if there were), but it seems like a more robust strategy, e.g.,
less prone to revlock issues between the old/new kernels.
