The basis for kexec are already on their way to mainline, as part of the
hibernate series that James has put together.

I'd expect someone to:

1) rebase the remaining kexec/kdump patches based on the current
2) post these patches when -rc1 gets cut in two weeks from now,
3) address the review comments in a timely manner,
4) update the series once a week so that we see some actual progress

If this happens, I can't see any reason why this code wouldn't get
merged. But keeping kexec and kdump together is not what has prevented
the code from getting merged until now.
