There was a patch of kexec on SMP mips 64 , and I attempt to implement
kexec on SMP powerpc .
I found that , it was a little different with mips when booting a
kernel. We know that, every CPU jumped directly into kernel on
mips, but on powerpc , E500 SMP, the 'master' CPU was in charge of
'slave' CPUs , so 'slave' CPU could do nothing
but to wait for 'master' to wake him up in Init function.
How to implement kexec on SMP powerpc?
Any suggestions would be appreciate
