There were a number of shortcomings in your patch
- The version you used had no s390 support
- toolchain/patch-kernel.sh $(KEXEC_DIR) package/kexec/ kexec-*.patch
  forgot to escape the asterisk
- it had a typo "__" instead of the proper "_" in the .mk
- it didn't uninstall itself from the target in kexec-clean

Put short, i rebased that diff to add arm support against the debian
version and redid/fixed the shortcomings. Please test if it still does
what it is intended to do (it should ;).
