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.
