Greetings!  Two other unexec issues I thought I'd mention in case they
trigger any ideas:

1) Unexec'ed (elf) images cannot (apparently) be prelinked

2) Unexec'ed images on powerpc cannot be reliably stripped

Any ideas, or even just confirmations/refutations with emacs, most

I'd expect emacs to have the same problems as described in the two bugs above, but I have not checked. The trend seems to go to more complicated binary file formats, and more types of file formats. This suggests to me that it might be a good time to rethink the whole unexec approach. There must be some other more platform neutral way to save and restore state.
