Subject[RFC PATCH 01/12] kexec: Allow architecture code to opt-out at runtime
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Allow a runtime opt-out of kexec support for architecture code in case
the kernel is running in an environment where kexec is not properly
supported yet.

This will be used on x86 when the kernel is running as an SEV-ES
guest. SEV-ES guests need special handling for kexec to hand over all
CPUs to the new kernel. This requires special hypervisor support and
handling code in the guest which is not yet implemented.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v5.10+
Signed-off-by: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>
