As I mentioned in your other patch, this crash_kexec can go I think if you're
going to do it in oops_end (as long as you correct the deadlock condition there

And as before, if you could rediff so that we didn't reintroduce the deadlock
that we just fixed, that would be much appreciated.

Beyond that, I think this looks good. Fix that up and It'll have my ack.

Best
Neil
