Milton Miller - Jan. 2, 2009, 9:04 p.m.
The kernel updated its ABI to tell the relocatable kernel to run
where it was loaded.

We now need to set a flag in the kernel image.  Since we only have
the kernel image avialable as const data to kexec-tools c code, set
the flag in the copy we put in purgatory, and have it set the flag
in the kernel (after purgatory has run its checksum).  To simplfy
the purgatory code we can always copy the flag word back to the
kernel as the c code made a copy of the original flag value.

v3: 
purgatory now copies the flag to the kernel master entrypoint instead of
the kernel reading the value copied to 0 with the slave spinloop.

rename the local varable to my_run_at_load to be more consistent, and
change its type to uint32_t from unsigned int
