parentkexec: implementation of new syscall kexec_file_load (diff)
purgatory/sha256: provide implementation of sha256 in purgaotory context
Next two patches provide code for purgatory. This is a code which does not link against the kernel and runs stand alone. This code runs between two kernels. One of the primary purpose of this code is to verify the digest of newly loaded kernel and making sure it matches the digest computed at kernel load time. We use sha256 for calculating digest of kexec segmetns. Purgatory can't use stanard crypto API as that API is not available in purgatory context. Hence, I have copied code from crypto/sha256_generic.c and compiled it with purgaotry code so that it could be used. I could not #include sha256_generic.c file here as some of the function signature requiered little tweaking. Original functions work with crypto API but these ones don't So instead of doing #include on sha256_generic.c I just copied relevant portions of code into arch/x86/purgatory/sha256.c. Now we shouldn't have to touch this code at all. Do let me know if there are better ways to handle it. This patch does not enable compiling of this code. That happens in next patch. I wanted to highlight this change in a separate patch for easy review.
