There seems to have been quite a bit of discussion of this patchset.

I am of a mind to release kexec-tools v2.0.12-rc1 (and thus v2.0.12)
without these changes as the v4.7 kernel is already out and that
is the timing I had in mind for kexec-tools v2.0.12 (the lateness on
my shoulders).

The implication is the arm64 patches would likely end up in the v2.0.13
release of kexec-tools which I aim to release around the time of the v4.9
