Description Vivek Goyal 2006-09-27 17:37:10 UTC
Description of problem:

Relocatable kernel support was included in RHEL5 Beta1. For that kexec-tools
also had to be modified to generated the ELF headers properly in output
vmcore file. Due to lack of time a stop gap fix was put in kexec-tools.

Now a more proper fix is available for kexec-tools which should be included.

I'm running into some hard reboot problems while testing the patch.  I've sent a
note to the reporter asking if he has any insight.

Comment 2 Neil Horman 2006-09-29 16:49:37 UTC
Vivek has shown me what problem is causing this (as described in bz 207598). 
Given that this will break kexec/kdump functionality with kernels prior to
kernel version that had this problem, I'm making this bug dependent on
resolution of bz 207598, so that we are left with a testable kdump package at
all times
