status update:

567871,"Execshield stack protection is disabled for sbin/kexec on ppc"

Verified, there's no such issue with ppc64, this should only limited to ppc32, so it does not matter for us, anyway I will verify on my mac mini if I have time.

bz593109 kdump(2nd kernel) does not start.

This one is a UEFI problem, looks a little complex. Will test it on an uefi booting machine to see if this is still a issue with rhel7.

Add mjg into cc list.

Matthew, could you help to verify the bz593109? It related to some uefi patches for rhel6, I'm not sure it they are valid for rhel7. I tested F17 efi without any other modification except of the rsdp passing, test results looks good.

If the patches mentioned in bz593109 is not valid for rhel7, I will just close this bug.

Thanks a lot in advance.
