As we know , kexec stores  data  for new kernel image ,  in the form
of   a page list.

And kexec uses the physical address of the another  page for a
"next-page" pointer.

However, PowerPC e500  does not allow users to turn off the MMU, so we
can not used physical address directly in our code.

My question is : how to implement kexec in e500 , which  can not turn off MMU?


Thank you
