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.
