I have tested kexec to Nuri board using Exynos4210(Dual-core ARM
Cortex-A9) on the latest mainline kernel but i am facing one problem.
The kernel enabled SMP, kernel_kexec() calls machine_shutdown to stop
all cpus except current cpu and jumps to the new kernel but the kernel
is hanged soon.
I used cpu_down(1) to make disabled cpu1 instead of smp_send_stop of
machine_shutdown and it is booted successfully to new kernel.
