This is very interesting. So basically I should build a minimal kernel
with kexec support to launch the "normal" kernel living in /boot. But
what exactly needs to be compiled in the payload kernel? I guess some
hardware has to be initialised at this stage... Can I compile it 64bit?
Is there any further documentation on this?
I found something on the wiki
