Hi all,

After somewhat of a hiatus between releases - sorry about that -
I am planning to release kexec-tools v2.0.21 in the next two weeks
to roughly coincide with the release of the v5.10 kernel.

I would like to ask interested parties to send any patches they would like
included in v2.0.21 within one week so that I can make an rc release.

For reference the patches queued up since v2.0.20 are as follows:
