[PATCH] kexec: x86_64: add CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START
Eric W. Biederman [Sat, 25 Jun 2005 21:57:52 +0000 (14:57 -0700)]
For one kernel to report a crash another kernel has created we need
to have 2 kernels loaded simultaneously in memory.  To accomplish this
the two kernels need to built to run at different physical addresses.

This patch adds the CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START option to the x86_64 kernel
so we can do just that.  You need to know what you are doing and
the ramifications are before changing this value, and most users
won't care so I have made it depend on CONFIG_EMBEDDED

bzImage kernels will work and run at a different address when compiled
with this option but they will still load at 1MB.  If you need a kernel
loaded at a different address as well you need to boot a vmlinux.
