I applied this on top of the existing patch in my test tree.  The
first few kexec's went just fine, but when I tried to switch from
a kernel based on arch/ia64/configs/tiger_defconfig to a kernel
based on arch/ia64/defconfig, the system failed to boot (probably
because of problems with the mpt/fusion driver).  Last few messages
on the console were:

I reset the system, and the generic kernel booted just fine. kexec
from the generic kernel to the tiger_defconfig kernel also worked OK.
