I don't think this changes the game regarding openinkpot. In order to use it, you still have to compile it and adapt to the platform. This probably belongs in another thread, but anyway: The kernel itself is open enough already, at least for a lot of purposes. Of course, the kexec is still a good thing to have, but openinkpot won't require a different kernel. Rather, openinkpot would have to be adopted to the kindle environment: e-ink handling, and I think more importantly power management (and some secondary things like wifi and wan). After all, you still need a kernel tailored for the hardware. And the best fit for now are most probably Amazon's kernel sources.
