We need to flush the new kernel to PoC. The code that was here that
was doing that would only be executed when the new kernel needed
relocation (the standard kexec case). We also need to flush kernels
that do not need relocation (the standard kdump case).
I moved the new kernel flush to kexec_segment_flush(), called
unconditionally in machine_kexec() so we can handle both cases
with one piece of code.
Have you experienced a problem on mustang with the current version?
