These patches are for Nexus 7 kernel[1].

These two patches allows Nexus 7's kernel to be booted
via kexec-hardboot method[2]. In short, kexec-hardboot
is like normal exec, but does full reboot of the device,
so that drivers are properly initialized. Normal kexec
results into freeze on Nexus 7.

Ported from Jens Andersen <jens.andersen at gmail.com>'s
kernel for Asus TF201 [3].
