    Please copy all the mails related to kexec and kdump problems to
    fastboot mailing list also (fastboot@lists.osdl.org).

    Instead of modifying reboot scripts, first can you try following simple
    steps from shell.

    1. Load the kernel.
    #kexec -l <kernel-image> --append=<boot time options>

    2. Drop to run level 3
    # init 3

    3. Exec into second kernel
    # kexec -e


    Thanks
