I have a different patch I am testing that gets rid of all this crap.

You can also send it to me for testing if you want...

The strategy we are using is to use cvmx_bootmem named blocks for all memory in 
a KEXEC environment.

Kernel image still must be mapped to appear in /proc/iomem...
Because there are two use cases of KEXEC: crashkernel (that is considered more 
often) and just a normal reboot of the same kernel,
which needs old kernel image mapped... I've been testing later one...

Best regards,
Alexander Sverdlin.
