I tried 2.6.20 + your patch.
I tried the same with the addition of Bob Picco's patch to stop
the crash-kernel crashing.
And I tried with Sparse and Discontig memory.
And in all cases I get much the same result :(

I'm wondering if perhaps its got something to do with kexec-tools,
I'm using kexec-tools-testing from git. Is there any possibility
you could send a static binary the version that you are using
(if its from Eric's old tree cross compiling doesn't really work)?

Or perhaps my kernel config is odd.

Indeed. Do you have any way to dump purgatory's console across
a serial port? The vga console and I are on opposite sides of town
at the moent.
