I have had another crash on different node with different hardware this 
time. This one as well was running fine under pve 2.3 with kernel (IIRC) 
2.6.32-19-pve.

The hardware is a HP DL360 G8.

It crashed again while I was rebooting a guest with kexec reboots 
enabled. Screenshots attached.

This feels like a regression since pve 2.3 to me. Has no-one else 
suffered from this? Perhaps kexec is not often used in kvm guests. In my 
case it is part of a product, which is why it is almost always installed 
on our development and testing guests.

Cheers,

Frederic
