Backoirted oatch to 2.4.19 for kexec does not work

Hello from Gregg C Levine
I don't know why, Andrew, but the patch your company supplied via the
FTP site, for the 2.4.19 kernel, applied correctly, and I was able to
build the kernel. But the expected event didn't work. When I issued a
"kexec kernel.elf", which was built using the latest version of
mkelfImage from the FTP site, that Eric has for his company, I got the
same expected output as before. Here it is:

Incidentally that's the same thing that I got before. Did this
function work for you? 
What distribution did you use for building your kernel, and, ah, test
As it happens, this is built using Slackware 8.0, with the compiler
version as 2.95.3, and the binary utilities at 2.10.90. Do I need to
upgrade them for attempting to build the later kernels?
