The kexec branch is missing the following change, which is required for
fast reboot with multi-cpus.

   commit 279f1df915c3a6ed3075d98a849705bf53851f99
   Author: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@...hat.com>
   Date:   Tue Nov 26 10:25:28 2013 +0800

       kexec: migrate to reboot cpu

With this change added, I confirmed that the branch kernel works fine.

Thanks,
-Toshi
