    I have struggled with this from time to time. Wanting to
    report a trace, but it is too long for the screen.

    Using a framebuffer console helps a lot. I use 1280x1024 resolution,
    and 8x8 characters. The resulting 160x128 console isn't
    that fun to _work_ with, but most panics/oopses fit. I rarely
    work at the console anyway. If you do, consider making two almost
    identical kernels where console font size is the only difference. (The
    extra compile takes very little time.) Then use the small-font kernel
    when debugging.
