Thanks, Kirill.

Tested on qemu with la57 support, kexec works well. Kdump kernel can
boot into kernel, while there's a memory allocation failure during
boot which I am trying to fix. The reason is kdump kernel need reserve
as small memory as possible. Will post soon.

For this patch, feel free to add my Tested-by.
