I'm trying to use kexec on a ASUS WL-500gP router (BCM47XX, little endian MIPS) with a kernel with some additional changes from OpenWRT.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me - when I load a new kernel and try to execute it, it just says "Bye" and the router is dead:

# kexec -l vmlinux
# kexec -e

I signalled the issue before in the past, with a kernel:

Ideas? Ways to debug it?
