No.. I am working for that..

Speed is good when sha256 is prepared in update_purgatory..just a sec..
while it is 2 min during verification..

one diff is that purgatory is using byte copy in memcpy while kexec had 
generic memcpy which has byte/word/page copy features.

But, Most likely speed is low because dcache is disabled.
So I am working to enable d-cache and identity mapped mmu table for 
crashdump regions in purgatory.
