Contrary to expectations, my experience with this patch on a 2.6.18-rc4
kernel is that kexec -l, kexec -e is now working without my adding any
delays to mptscsih, and the kexec -p, echo c >/proc/sysrq-trigger case
hangs.

My "got here" printk's on the console indicate:

SysRq : Trigger a crashdump
machine_crash_shutdown
device_shootdown
machine_kexec type: 1

And then it hangs.

My test system: hp A6870A server rx2600
