CONFIG_KEXEC: kexec system call

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_KEXEC has multiple definitions:

found in arch/s390/Kconfig

(none)

Kexec system call (EXPERIMENTAL) found in arch/arm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KEXEC:

Help text

kexec is a system call that implements the ability to shutdown your current kernel, and to start another kernel. It is like a reboot but it is independent of the system firmware. And like a reboot you can start any kernel with it, not just Linux.

It is an ongoing process to be certain the hardware in a machine is properly shutdown, so do not be surprised if this code does not initially work for you.

Kexec system call (EXPERIMENTAL) found in arch/mips/Kconfig

Help text

kexec is a system call that implements the ability to shutdown your current kernel, and to start another kernel. It is like a reboot but it is independent of the system firmware. And like a reboot you can start any kernel with it, not just Linux.

The name comes from the similarity to the exec system call.

It is an ongoing process to be certain the hardware in a machine is properly shutdown, so do not be surprised if this code does not initially work for you. It may help to enable device hotplugging support. As of this writing the exact hardware interface is strongly in flux, so no good recommendation can be made.
