You mean like the "panic_on_oops" sysctl?? (implemented in i386 & ppc64)

Sorry about any confusion there.

Um, could you elaborate on why you would want that?
kmsgdump assumes that the entire floppy belongs to it, so there
should be plenty of room for multiple oopsen (although I don't
know what it does on disk-full....).

I plan to add support for > 32 KB log buf sizes, but that's all I have
planned for now.
