I find link on Web that describes a module to load other linux kernel or
bootloader with a commandline params inside a linux.

Works are perform by bootloader kernel module that get kernel, initrd and
command line params.

Unfortunately, this module has been developed by a private company and

All embedded developers are waiting for a module of its kind in the kernel
but open source and would greatly facilitate the development of the kernel
for these systems without having to flash the kernel or loaded via nfs or
other boot method.

Send this email after looking at some kernel module that can do this work..
Would be very grateful if you could tell me something about it.
