Just to clear up a possible miscommunication: the above kexec doesn't
have too much to do with the Linux kexec mechanism.  Rather, it's a
separate implementation to fully replace some software running in a
paravirtual domain with another.  It isn't necessarily Linux specific,
though there aren't too many paravitual OS-es yet.  Its author
explicitly suggested its use in Grub, so relicensing shouldn't be a
problem (similarly for MiniOS), but I asked for clarification.
