Toshi, thanks a lot for your effort.

I would like to send a new version which addressing several issues
for code structure improvement and changelog etc.

If there's no further comments I will send them tommorrow. I have done the
rebase in the personal git tree (kexec-efi branch):

They are not functional changes, I hope the test result will be same.

If you would like to do a quick test again I can add the tested-by when I resend
them, or for saving your time just test them after people are ok with the
patches themselves finally.
