Kexec support involves kernel level support per architecture and
a user space kexec-tools.
Generic kexec kernel support for ppc (ppc32/GameCube) was added
sometime back by Albert Herranz, and I think they got included in 2.6.10-mm1
Albert's code was also posted on this site:
ppc64 kexec kernel support was added recently (2.6.12-rc4-mm1)
Eric's site can be used for downloading the kexec-tools.
You may want to cross post kexec discussion mails to fastboot at osdl.org,
as that is the primary list where all kexec discussions happen.
Hope this helps
Thanks and Regards,
