kexec on ppc64

I'm trying to determine how kexec'ing works on 64 bit powerpc. When allocating a region for the kexec'ed kernel is it ever the same as the currently running kernel or do you always boot the kexec'ed kernel from a different memory region? I understand that a crash kernel will be in a different region, however I was hoping to confirm the behavior for a normal "kexec -e".
