Same here - preloading the new kernel and issuing kexec -e after
init 1 works on the troublesome SMP system I'd earlier been sending
you earlier. Bootimg used to work on this setup, so bypassing the
bios calls had the expected effect.

If I issue the call earlier though, it runs into trouble with aic7xxx
reporting interrupts during setup. Guess you know why we are looking
at that case - eventually need to be able to transition directly at dump
time without a chance to go through user-space shutdown ...
