I have a mpc8641 hpcn board which i want to run kexec on and also do some research on software restart.
I think kexec is an excellent idea for embedded systems where you want to have quick restarts, but currently I can only see ppc gamecube support.
Somewhere i saw that Benjamin Herrenschmidt had plans, but it was a rather old message. Have anyone done any work with this for powerpc?
Otherwise i intend do start some work to port it to the powerpc platform(if possible).
I guess that the powerpc usage of device tree instead of the "blob" might be the biggest issue?
Is this the correct place for these discussions?
