That's a hardware cursor, it always blinks. That doesn't mean anything.

However, you might try serial console to get a bit more diagnostic.
Also, please try (if you still use VGA)

   kexec --console-vga --debug -p /boot/vmlinux ....

That gives a bit more diagnostics in purgatory code to see where the
system hangs. However, not sure if that also works when booting the
crashkernel. Can you try a normal kexec (with -l) first and see if that
works in your configuration?
