This option didn't have any effect, or maybe it's because it's such a serious crash
the kernel has no time to actually print an ooops/panic message.

dmesg messages up to a crash can be seen here:

I dumped them using this application:

$ cat scat.c

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <fcntl.h>

#define O_LARGEFILE 0100000
#define BUFFER 4096
#define __USE_FILE_OFFSET64 1
#define __USE_LARGEFILE64 1

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
int fd_out;
int64_t bytes_read;
void *buffer;

if (argc!=2) {
printf("Usage is: scat destination\n");
return 1;

buffer = malloc(BUFFER * sizeof(char));
if (buffer == NULL) {
printf("Error: can't allocate buffers\n");
return 2;
memset(buffer, 0, BUFFER);

printf("Dumping to \"%s\" ... ", argv[1]);

if ((fd_out = open64(argv[1], O_WRONLY | O_LARGEFILE | O_SYNC | O_NOFOLLOW, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR | S_IRGRP | S_IROTH)) == -1) {
printf("Error: destination file can't be created\n");
perror("open() ");
return 2;

bytes_read = 1;

while (bytes_read) {
bytes_read = fread(buffer, sizeof(char), BUFFER, stdin);

if (write(fd_out, (void *) buffer, bytes_read) != bytes_read)
printf("Error: can't write data to the destination file! Possibly a target disk is full\n");
return 3;



printf(" OK\n");
return 0;

I ran it this way: while :; do dmesg -c; done | scat /dev/sda11 (yes, straight to a hdd partition to eliminate a FS cache)

Don't judge me harshly - I'm not a programmer.
