kexec -p and initrd

I'm trying to figure something out but the man pages seem a bit 
ambiguous.  If I specify the "--initrd" option when loading a kernel for 
use on panic, does the initrd get copied into kernel memory at that 
point or does it get loaded from the specified path after the panic when 
the new kernel is booting?

I'll take a look at the code, but I thought it'd be quicker if someone 
already knew the answer.
