+ bool "kexec system call (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on EXPERIMENTAL
+ kexec is a system call that implements the ability to shutdown your
+ current kernel, and to start another kernel. It is like a reboot
+ but it is indepedent of the system firmware. And like a reboot
+ you can start any kernel with it, not just Linux.
+ The name comes from the similiarity to the exec system call.
+ It is an ongoing process to be certain the hardware in a machine
+ is properly shutdown, so do not be surprised if this code does not
+ initially work for you. It may help to enable device hotplugging
+ support. As of this writing the exact hardware interface is
+ strongly in flux, so no good recommendation can be made.
+ In the GameCube implementation, kexec allows you to load and
+ run DOL files, including kernel and homebrew DOLs.
