Warm reboot (Kexec like)

From the linux manual:
kexec allows one to load another kernel from the currently running Linux kernel. Normally one would load a kernel, and possibly an initial ramdisk, into the currently running kernel using kexec and then initiate a warm reboot by executing kexec again with appropriate option.
Using kexec the reboot time is a lot reduced no BIOS screens, no bootloader... only the kernel is rebooted really.
