This happens when CONFIG_KEXEC=y but CONFIG_KEXEC_FILE=n, and is fixed by 
the following change, which will be in my next revision of the kexec
buffer hand-over series:

    Fix for "kexec_file: Add buffer hand-over support for the next kernel"
    
    Declare stub struct kexec_buf when CONFIG_KEXEC_FILE=n.

Patch
