Using kexec as indicated hereunder I am enable to use ethernet network 
directly after kexec boot
due to I suppose last igb driver "igb-1.2.45-K2"
Only solution found is to rmmod igb  and just after modprobe igb

Coul you tell me the kexec version that take into account the driver 
May be an other solution is to tell kexec to load this modules ? but how ?

any help will be appreciated
Thanks in advance
