Hi all,

I am planning to release kexec-tools v2.0.15 in the next two weeks.

The normal cadence would have seen it released around the time of the v4.11
kernel. I apologise that I am kicking off this process several weeks behind
that schedule.

I would like to ask interested parties to send any patches they would like
included in v2.0.15 within one week so that I can make an rc release.

For reference the patches queued up since v2.0.14 are as follows:
