    That's what happens when a feature crosses 2 or 3 project boundaries: from the
    reasonable 2-3 months upstream arrival time it lengthens to a few years, up to a
    decade.

    The solution is IMO obvious: move the kexec tools into tools/ and integrate it much
    more tightly and make it all more usable to the average kernel tester.

    Thanks,

    Ingo
