Summary report of 12 combinations:

kexec 1.2 kexec 1.2 kexec 1.3 kexec 1.3
Test raw +mkelf raw +mkelf
---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
kexec_test runs reset runs reset
linux-2.5.44 hang boot,scsi panic hang boot,scsi panic
linux-2.4.18 hang boot,bad eep100 hang boot,bad eep100

Key:
linux-2.4.18 == 2.4.18 + CGL
linux-2.5.44 == 2.5.44 + kexec
kexec 1.2 == kexec-tools-1.2
kexec 1.3 == kexec-tools-1.3

kexec_test 1.2 was used for the 1.2 column,
kexec_test 1.3 was used for the 1.3 column.

Notes:
1) kexec_test 1.[23] "runs to completion" when not
massaged by mkelfImage.

2) kexec_test 1.[23] "resets" the system (firmware
starts like cold boot) when massaged by mkelfImage.

3) all linux kernels tested on this system (same IBM
eServer as yesterday) "hang" when started with
kexec 1.[23] *unless* massaged by mkelfImage.

4) linux-2.5.44 + mkelfImage panic in the SCSI driver
during reboot with kexec 1.[23]. <see below>

5) linux-2.4.18 + CGL + mkelfImage + "root=805" came -->this<--
close to booting all the way, but it looks like the
ethernet driver can't probe the card in whatever state
it is left in... <see below> ...and there's that little
blurb about "Verify that the card is a bus-master capable slot."
Hmmm... It's got a ServerWorks chipset...

6) no visible differences in success/failure between
kexec-tools-1.2 and kexec-tools-1.3.

Wild Speculation:
Aside from driver issues, it would appear that whatever it is
that mkelfImage does, it is better to use it for this specific
system. It would also appear that there may be several
lingering device shutdown/reprobe problems.
