I was kind of surprised to find that kexec-tools was not already
packaged. Is there a reason why it hasn't been packaged, or am I just
the first one to try packaging it?

I was also surprised, having installed kexec-tools on Guix before ;-)

Turns out I never upstreamed it. There are probably 5 other kexec-tools patches somewhere. Oh well.

Your patch looks good to me. I prefer the home page below over a directory listing. Feel free to crib what you like.

Your synopsis/description imply that it's boot-Linux-only. I don't think that's the case, but haven't tried others in practice.
