Hi Dave,

I just browsed AKASHI's patches (v7). The way I see it the common code changes
are on different areas of kexec_file and shouldn't get in conflict. Only in the
arch code (s390 and arm64) some function calls might need an update. But I have
to take a closer look on the patches first.

@AKASHI: Welcome to the list. While browsing I couldn't find any
arch_apply_relocation function for arm64. These require the biggest changes in
my patch set. Did I just miss it or does arm64 work differently?

@Dave: Happy holiday

Thanks
Philipp
