OK, but I want to have a minimum of kexec.arch always exist.
How about this?

| #define ARCH_HAS_KIMAGE_ARCH
|
| struct kimage_arch {
| phys_addr_t dtb_mem;
| #ifdef CONFIG_KEXEC_FILE
| void *dtb_buf;
| /* Core ELF header buffer */
| void *elf_headers;
| unsigned long elf_headers_sz;
| unsigned long elf_load_addr;
| #endif

| void machine_kexec(struct kimage *kimage)
| {
| ...
| cpu_soft_restart(kimage != kexec_crash_image,
| reboot_code_buffer_phys, kimage->head, kimage->start,
| kimage->arch.dtb_mem);

Thanks
