2014-08-08kexec: support for kexec on panic using new system callVivek Goyal
This patch adds support for loading a kexec on panic (kdump) kernel usning new system call. It prepares ELF headers for memory areas to be dumped and for saved cpu registers. Also prepares the memory map for second kernel and limits its boot to reserved areas only.

2014-08-08purgatory: core purgatory functionalityVivek Goyal
Create a stand alone relocatable object purgatory which runs between two kernels. This name, concept and some code has been taken from kexec-tools. Idea is that this code runs after a crash and it runs in minimal environment. So keep it separate from rest of the kernel and in long term we will have to practically do no maintenance of this code. This code also has the logic to do verify sha256 hashes of various segments which have been loaded into memory. So first we verify that the kernel we are jumping to is fine and has not been corrupted and make progress only if checsums are verified. This code also takes care of copying some memory contents to backup region.

2014-08-08purgatory/sha256: provide implementation of sha256 in purgaotory contextVivek Goyal
Next two patches provide code for purgatory. This is a code which does not link against the kernel and runs stand alone. This code runs between two kernels. One of the primary purpose of this code is to verify the digest of newly loaded kernel and making sure it matches the digest computed at kernel load time. We use sha256 for calculating digest of kexec segmetns. Purgatory can't use stanard crypto API as that API is not available in purgatory context. Hence, I have copied code from crypto/sha256_generic.c and compiled it with purgaotry code so that it could be used. I could not #include sha256_generic.c file here as some of the function signature requiered little tweaking. Original functions work with crypto API but these ones don't So instead of doing #include on sha256_generic.c I just copied relevant portions of code into arch/x86/purgatory/sha256.c. Now we shouldn't have to touch this code at all. Do let me know if there are better ways to handle it. This patch does not enable compiling of this code. That happens in next patch. I wanted to highlight this change in a separate patch for easy review.
