My kernel fails with kexec

I have a kernel (which is not Linux kernel), and want to have it
worked with kexec. Fortunately, kexec crashes when booting it. (kexec
-e command)

My suspect is that my kernel is not written to "support" kexec. So
could anybody tell me what is the requirement of a kernel, so it works
with kexec?

kexec spits out the below message on QEMU when booting my kernel. Any
hint on how to debug the problem?
