Hello developers.

Can you kexec()'s grub?

I mean, for example,
 {MyPC]# /usr/sbin/kexec -l /boot/grub.elf -append="/dev/hdc"
or such to boot /dev/hdc installed OS.
If this possible, you can boot virtually any OS from linux command line,
without considering it has ELF image or not.
Especially, I want to boot freedos for now, because need to run AWDFLASH.exe.
Below stuff are not possible?
 [MyPC]# kexec -l /DOS/freedos.elf -append="initrd=/DOS/AWD.img"
 [MyPC]# kexec -l /boot/grub.elf -append="img=/DOS/freedos.elf initrd=/DOS/AWD.img"
or ...
