Hi,

What's your exact problem ? It hangs right after saying 'Bye...' ?
Some monthes ago, I played with the patch from M. Syrchin [ sorry, I don't
remember if it was on linux-mips or on the kexec list ]. I've made on it
a small modification (compare the machine_kexec_prepare function in my
version [1] and the original function) and it was somewhat working on
Qemu and on my box. It was not perfect but at least with a very minimal
test system, it was working. Maybe you can try it and see if it works
for you too. Depending on your platform, you may have to define machine
specific hooks too.

Regards,
Arnaud
