#5342 assigned enhancement

Warm reboot (Kexec like)

Reported by: fano Owned by: nobody
Priority: low Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

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.

Certainly nice and shouldn't be that complicated either. Patches welcome.
