An updated kexec-tools package that fixes a bug is now available for RHEL systems. The kexec-tools package provides tools that facilitate a new kernel to boot using the Linux kernel kexec feature, either on a normal or a panic reboot. Users of kexec-tools are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves the following issue:
