Description of problem:

I'm looking for this patch in kexec:

commit 0e4946bc3009e7b9ce6f9d792077eddd7e40cc14
Author: Eric Biggers <ebiggers3@gmail.com>
Date:   Tue Jun 5 19:46:07 2012 -0400

    Load bzImages smaller than 32 KiB
    Allow bzImages smaller than 32KiB to be kexec'ed.

See http://git.kernel.org/?p=utils/kernel/kexec/kexec-tools.git;a=commit;h=0e4946bc3009e7b9ce6f9d792077eddd7e40cc14 for more info.

Can we get an updated kexec-tools with this patch?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 joshua 2012-10-12 00:28:09 EDT
F17 and F18 please!
Comment 2 Dave Young 2012-10-12 00:39:29 EDT
Hi, I'm occupied by some other things, I can build a test rpm for you, can you help to test it?
Comment 3 joshua 2012-10-12 14:06:49 EDT
Yes, I'll test whatever you create.  As for what you create though... it looks like there are 30+ updates since the last release of 2.0.3.

Obviously I need the "Load bzImages smaller than 32 KiB" patch, not sure if it requires some or most of the others though.  I wish they would just do another release.
