So I followed the instructions here:
https://documentation.suse.com/fr-fr/sles/12-SP3/html/SLES-all/cha-tuning-kexec.html#cha-tuning-kexec-basic-usage,
below the output on an Unmatched board using a vmlinux stored on a sd
card:

ubuntu@...ntu:~$ sudo sbin/kexec -l vmlinux --append="$(cat
/proc/cmdline)" --initrd=/boot/initrd.img
Warning: No cmdline provided, using append string as cmdline
Warning: No dtb provided, using /sys/firmware/fdt
[ 1813.472671] INFO: task kworker/1:0:988 blocked for more than 120 seconds.
[ 1813.478751]       Not tainted 5.15.0-rc1+ #15
[ 1813.483110] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs"
disables this message.
Could not find a free area of memory of 0x3000 bytes...
locate_hole failed

I used the Ubuntu kernel, so this is pretty large:
-rwxrwxr-x 1 ubuntu ubuntu 277M Oct  5 15:47 vmlinux
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 98M Sep 21 03:25 /boot/initrd.img

Then if I don't load the initrd (I sometimes have the same warning as
above) I can at least kexec the new kernel but it fails to boot:

ubuntu@...ntu:~$ sudo ./sbin/kexec -e
Warning: No cmdline or append string provided
Warning: No dtb provided, using /sys/firmware/fdt

This reliably fails here.
