Can someone explain about the "kexec bug". Is this a matter of
recompiling the kernel with a different set of flags, or is there a
real bug in the 2.6.12 kernels? On our latest bootcd build, we get
all the way up to kexec and then we fail.
We NEED a 2.6.12 kernel on our bootcd's in order to fix a network
driver bug, but this means that we can't bootstrap Planetlab, and
hence we are still dead in the water.
