Hi everybody

resending the series as there was no reaction, yet. Furthermore i was told
that Andrew and the x86 list should also be CCed, so welcome.

No changes made to the patches since first time i sent them. The patches
apply to the current master (v4.16-rc1).

Thanks
Philipp

this series adds the kexec_file_load system call to s390. Before the system
call is added there are some preparations/clean ups to common
kexec_file_load. In detail this series contains:

Patch #1&2: Minor cleanups/fixes.

Patch #3-9: Clean up the purgatory load/relocation code. Especially remove
the mis-use of the purgatory_info->sechdrs->sh_offset field, currently
holding a pointer into either kexec_purgatory (ro) or purgatory_buf (rw)
depending on the section. With these patches the section address will be
calculated verbosely and sh_offset will contain the offset of the section
in the stripped purgatory binary (purgatory_buf).

Patch #10: Allows architectures to set the purgaory load address. This
patch is important for s390 as the kernel and purgatory have to be loaded
to fixed addresses. In current code this is impossible as the purgatory
load is opaque to the architecture.

Patch #11: Moves x86 purgatories sha implementation to common lib/
directory.

Patches #12-17 finally adds the kexec_file_load system call to s390.

Please note that I had to touch arch code for x86 and power a little. In
theory this should not change the behavior but I don't have a way to test
it. Cross-compiling with defconfig(*) works fine for both.

Thanks
Philipp
