Patch request for the OM 2.6.24 kernel: kexec patch 4736/1

I'm requesting that we add Richard Purdie's kexec patch to the openmoko 
2.6.24 kernel:

(This patch has been accepted and merged into the arm-linux tree by RMK)

The user-space changes that RP mentions are already in the kexec-tools 
package in the feeds for OM; adding this kernel patch enables the ability 
for the existing user-space kexec command to alter the command-line 
arguments to the  kexec'd kernel.

(Yes, the ability for u-boot to boot from the sd card *does* address some of 
the things that kexec does, but u-boot is by no means as flexible as is 
kexec with this patch and the matching userspace tools.)
