This patch is required in case if you are using new toolchains.

Best regards,
Maxim Uvarov.

Ah, thanks I was missing (and looking for) crashdump-powerpc.h
already :-)

I'm on Debian/stable (binutils 2.18, gcc 4.3.2), so I applied your patches 
to the latest -git checkout:

First, compilation fails with:

cc1: warnings being treated as errors
kexec/arch/ppc/kexec-ppc.c: In function ‘get_base_ranges’:
kexec/arch/ppc/kexec-ppc.c:258: error: value computed is not used
make: *** [kexec/arch/ppc/kexec-ppc.o] Error 1

Somehow a "-" hyphen made it into one of the functions:

Removing this, gets me further, until:


purgatory/arch/ppc/crt.o: In function `__lshrdi3':
(.text+0xf0): multiple definition of `__lshrdi3'
purgatory/arch/ppc/misc.o:(.text+0x50): first defined here
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [purgatory/purgatory.ro] Error 1

And has been defined in purgatory/arch/ppc/crt.S and
./purgatory/arch/ppc/misc.S. Removing it from e.g. crt.S
makes it compile, I have not tested it yet, though :-)

Thanks,
Christian.

PS: Where is -Werror defined? I could not find it anywhere in the kexec 
    source (execpt in arch/mips)...

Yes, that is expected result for old tool chains. New tool chains (from code
sourcery )  need this crt.S.
I think we can have --with-oldtoolchain option to configure to point to old
tool chains. (or even rename it to --with-crts,
I don't know what is better.)

This -Werror came from mips. kexec/arch/mips/Makefile. It is already removed
in the git. We already saw this problem.

Yes, I've seen this --with-oldtoolchain flag in ./configure, but: when 
exactly is my toolchain old enough so that this flag has to be used? Is my 
binutils 2.18 too old?

So, I'm all in favour of --with-crts (which I would use when compilation breaks
with some descriptive error message) or, even better: can't we set this 
flag during ./configure automatically, based on the actual toolchain installed
on the system? ./configure should be able to determine this, no?

Powerpc including a mops Makefile, whooha :-)

After kexec-tools compiled, I actually tried it:

# kexec -l /boot/2.6/zImage --command-line="root=/dev/hda6 ro"
# echo $?
0
# kexec -e
Starting new kernel
Bye!

....but then the system just hung there, no more messages, I had to
powercycle it.

The --debug options is listed for "dol-ppc" systems (I have a PowerBook
G4, not sure if this falls into this category), when I use it the help
screen of kexec is displayed again and at the bottom:

   Cannot load /boot/2.6/zImage


This is with 2.6.34-rc7 (today's git):

# file /boot/2.6/zImage
/boot/2.6/zImage: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500,
version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, with unknown capability 0x41000000
= 0x11676e75, with unknown capability 0x10000 = 0x90402, not stripped


.config and dmesg: http://nerdbynature.de/bits/2.6.34-rc7/kexec/

Can you try vmlinux? I tested only with vmlinux.

I think --with-crts would be better as --with-oldtoolchain could
mean many things.

Are there any debug flags (or kernel options?) I can set, to find out why 
it hangs here? Or does kexec not understand zImages?

Thanks,

zImage should not work with kexec. Only vmlinux.

Not really. There's extra debugging on some systems (with a hypervisor
console). I think you're on 32-bit, which means I don't really know what
I'm talking about, but I don't think zImage works - use vmlinux.

"should"?

PPC64 has something nice there:

  > kexec/arch/ppc64/kexec-zImage-ppc64.c:
  > fprintf(stderr, "zImage support is still broken\n");

....but I could not figure out where this is called from.

Anyway, tried vmlinux now and it's working, yay!

Thanks a lot, Maxim!

Christian.
