Good idea. The patch below implements your suggestion.

This has a consequence for patch 5/6 in this series, because it makes
this code be used in the path of the kexec_file_load and
kexec_load syscalls.

In the latter case, there's a call to copy_from_user and thus kmap_atomic 
can't be used. I can change the patch to use kmap_atomic if
state->from_kernel is true and kmap otherwise, but perhaps this is one more 
hint that patch 5/6 is not a very good idea after all.
