I'm aware of the patch; in fact, I was hoping that it would solve the problem.

I downloaded the svn tree, built mkelfImage, and then tested it.

Unfortunately, when I ran:

../mkelfImage vmlinuz- --initrd=initrd-
default newtest.ebi

and then kexec it, the system immediately reboots.  So it seems that more 
needs to be done.  I _wish_ I knew how to do it, but it's well above my 
current skill level.
