It's been pointed out to me that this default configuration uses
/vmlinuz as the image to kexec, which might not exist on many devices.

If you have a /boot/vmlinuz-<version> file, try making /vmlinuz a
symlink to that.  If you only have uImage files, or just a uImage
flash partition, it's a little more complicated; please contact me
off-list if you're still interested in helping.

It will also be useful, but not essential, to have a serial console
connected when running this test.

Thanks again.
