kexec for Linux 2.6.6 is now available at:

kexec userspace tools are at:

For 2.6.6, the kexec_load syscall number had to move due to
some new syscall additions in 2.6.6. However, I didn't
update the kexec userspace program for that 1-line change.
The change is in kexec-syscall.c, line 46:

#define __NR_kexec_load 274
#define __NR_kexec_load 283

(for i386).

There is one outstanding patch from Albert Herranz
that I will review and possibly use/merge soon.
His email is here:

And if anyone has suggestions for handling a variable/moving
syscall number (target), I'm interested in hearing them.
