The good news is that it worked for me. Not only that, I have just
managed to get lkcd to save a dump in memory and then write it out
to disk after a kexec soft boot ! I haven't tried real panic cases yet
(which probably won't work rightaway :) ) and have testing and
tuning to do. But kexec seems to be looking good.

Have a wonderful new year.
