Sorry for the delay, I finally got some time to work on this. As it 
turns out I'm passing cpu id instead of hart id to the next kernel (that 
comment on smp.h claiming that raw_smp_processor_id returns the hart id 
didn't help much) and interestingly enough cpu id and hart id match on 
qemu and also sometimes match on the unmatched / unleashed board. Also 
on unmatched / unleashed, hart id 0 is used by the non-linux hart so if 
we pass the cpu id of the boot cpu that's always going to be 0 it'll be 
invalid, but that's not always the case, especially for kdump. I'm also 
getting an error when trying to mount the rootfs on kdump on the 
unmatched board, because swiotlb can't allocate bounce buffers and the 
pcie driver doesn't work, so no nvme access. I'm looking for a way to 
make this work without messing things up, in any case I'll send some 
patches over the weekend. For the initrd issue I need to patch 
kexec-tools.

Regards,
Nick
