We could sure make use of kexec for quick reboots (it bloody takes
forever for the PROM to set up ECC memory).  The config option is in
Kconfig; I haven't checked the kernel source.  But the userspace package
kexec-tools barfs on the mipsel arch in configure.

Is anybody using this on MIPS?  Do the kernel portions work for anyone?
