Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] kexec_file_load() for arm
Date
The following series of patches provides implementation of the                                                         
kexec_file_load() system call form the arm architecture. zImage and uImage
(legacy format) files are supported. Like on arm64, there is no
possibility of loading a new DTB and the currently loaded is reused.

Changes in v3:
- move the patchset to next-20200929
- drop the first patch: set malloc pool size for the decompressor
(replaced by adc5f70293760)
- use text_offset added in 83dfeedb6663e
- add text_offset and malloc_size to struct zimage_krnl_size
- add dependency on CONFIG_KEXEC_FILE in arch/arm/include/asm/kexec.h
to enable compilation without CONFIG_KEXEC
- add dependency on MMU in Kconfig

Changes in v2:
- add CONFIG_KEXEC_FILE_UIMAGE for optional uImage support
- MALLOC_SIZE as a define instead of a symbol
- DCSZ tag holds combined dynamic memory requirements (bss+stack+malloc)
- use union for a single tag structure
- copyright notice includes Russell King

Łukasz Stelmach (4):
arm: add image header definitions
arm: decompressor: define a new zImage tag
arm: Add kexec_image_info
arm: kexec_file: load zImage or uImage, initrd and dtb
