Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235030
kexec fails on PlayStation 3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
We need to limit rmo_top to 0x07c00000 on PS3. Sony's version of kexec-tools, at
has the attached patch. (There are a couple of other alignment-related patches
in there too), which may warrant investigation).
Shouldn't the running kernel export this information directly, instead of making
us guess? Surely _it_ knows?

Sony patch for rmo_top.
fixed in -66.fc7. Thanks!
Since we've ripped out the platform determination code (since its not overly
reliable), I'm just going to reduce the max rmo_top value to 0x7c000000UL for
now. Being rawhide, If that has any adverse affects on anything else, we'll
catch it early and be able to come up with something better.
