Subject[KEXEC][2.5.69] kexec for 2.5.69 available
From
Date
Eric,

I have a patch set available for kexec for 2.5.69. I had an unrelated
delay in posting this due to some strange behavior of late with LILO and
my ext3-mounted /boot partition (/sbin/lilo would say that it updated,
but a subsequent reboot would not include my new kernel)

The patches are available for download from OSDL's patch lifecycle
manager ( http://www.osdl.org/cgi-bin/plm/ ).

Patch stack for kexec for 2.5.69:

kexec base for 2.5.69:
http://www.osdl.org/cgi-bin/plm?module=patch_info&patch_id=1828

kexec hwfixes for 2.5.69:
http://www.osdl.org/cgi-bin/plm?module=patch_info&patch_id=1829

kexec usemm change (allowed 2-way to work for me):
http://www.osdl.org/cgi-bin/plm?module=patch_info&patch_id=1830

optional change to defconfig (sets CONFIG_KEXEC=y):
http://www.osdl.org/cgi-bin/plm?module=patch_info&patch_id=1831

The patches are also available (with matching kexec-tools-1.8) from this
link pending a crontab update:
http://www.osdl.org/archive/andyp/kexec/2.5.69/

Andrew Morton's tree now also contains kexec, and you can pick up his
patch here:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.5/2.5.69/

I'll put together another release area for a matching kexec-tools for
-mm trees (different kexec syscall number between 2.5.* and 2.5.*-mm*)
as soon as I get -mm trees built and booted on my kexec test machines.


Regards,
Andy

To All: if you try kexec, a quick reply of success or failure to
fastboot@osdl.org would be appreciated. If it doesn't work for you,
please include the output of lspci in your email.
