Thanks for the effort, let's cc Fedora devel list, see if we can get help
from Fedora experts.

Summary the problem:
Latest kexec-tools koji build in rawhide results in a wrong kexec binary,
kexec load fails with something like below:
Unhandled rela relocation: R_X86_64_29 

This kinds of errors usually caused by gcc unnecesarrily add options like
-fexception, -fPIC, -fstack-protetor-* for building kexec purgatory which
runs in kernel mode.

I filed a bug below:

Appreciate for any hints how to fix the problem.
