I want to change the behavior to:

- No package config option to do automatic kexec reboot.
- "reboot" command causes a cold reboot
- Use "kexec-reboot" command to do a kexec reboot. "kexec-reboot" is a script installed by kexec-tools package. - kexec-tools package no longer provides coldreboot script which is no longer necessary.

Any comments/feedback? I intend to proceed with implementing new behavior next week after Wednesday unless there are objections or other ideas.

I assume you are aware of https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/15029 ?

I.e., one option to address this would be if we generated boot loader entries following the the boot loader spec:

Then "systemctl kexec" should work ootb.

A kexec-reboot script, which pre-loads the kernel and then calls systemctl reboot would certainly not hurt, though, as additional option.
