Kexec with LUKS

Some fancy mkinitcpio stuff needs to be done to make kexec work when the root filesystem is in LUKS; that needs to be clarified either here or in the mkinitcpio article. --Buhman (talk) 07:20, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Quite simply: fixing the kexec initscript. The kexec-load systemd unit-files already does the right thing; I no longer see reason to expend effort try to write a dirty hack for the former in this article. Admittedly, 9 days ago, I was speaking of the shutdown initcpio hook as well as including kexec in the BINARIES array, but I couldn't quite make it work *entirely* for myself, which is why I called it "fancy stuff" earlier; this was before I switched to systemd. --Buhman (talk) 09:53, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
The correct way to do this is (imho) to add clarification in mkinitcpio and reference that article here. --Buhman (talk) 09:53, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
