    Btw, might there be any idea in making the kernel just to freeze if a new
    trap occurs while displaying the Oops dump. It's the first dump that is
    important. Any subsequent dumps just scroll the important data away from
    the screen.

    A crash during crash is a sure indication that the system is out of
    business anyway (memory and/or kernel code is corrupted).
