Done. At the time of last week.
The only issue that I have now is a support for KASLR, but this is not
a kernel issue, but tool's. I'm now talking with Dave Anderson (RedHat)
about how we should fix it.

Yes, we are planning to do so.

I'd like to expect the code to be reviewed in a timely manner, too.
In v4.6, we have not got any comments (nor ack's) on kexec/kdump-specific
part of patches. If this happens again, it will make the turnaround of our
re-spinning even longer.

Yes if we have updates.
