Description of problem:
In previous releases, without this Bug 632709 - [6.1 FEAT] makedumpfile port to zLinux, kexec-tools was not provided with RHEL on System z because System z had no use of it.
Now that we will have a port/support of makedumpfile on RHEL 6.1 on System z,
we would like of course to have the kexec-tools package automaticaly built and included for RHEL 6.1 on System z.
Per Red Hat request (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=632709#c25) I am opening this bug just to track that kexec-tools is built and included in RHEL 6.1 on System z.
Thank you for your support!
IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback, setting OtherQA.
I'll make sure the package gets pulled into the s390x tree.
This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux
team for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release. As a
result of this evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of
this feature in the next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release.
While it is a goal to include this enhancement in the next minor release
of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the enhancement is not yet committed for
inclusion in the next minor release pending the next phase of actual
code integration and successful Red Hat and partner testing.
kexec-tools is already in the base group, so the s390x rpms should get pulled in automatically once the new build is pulled into the compose.

This bug was included in RHEL 6.1 Beta. Please confirm the status of this request as soon as possible.
If you're having problems accessing 6.1 bits, are delayed in your test execution or find in testing that the request was not addressed adequately, please let us know.
This is verified ok on R 6.1 snapshots, kexec is build for System z and makedumpfile tests are done. Thx
