    Until we allocate the error log buffer. The original crash was
    for a null-pointer deref of the unallocated buffer. I just sent
    out a patch to fix this; its a bit simpler than the below.

    In that email, I remarked:

    Andy Whitcroft's crash was appearently due to firmware complaining
    about lost power, (actually, lost power supply redundancy!), which
    occurred very early during boot.

    Type 00000040 (EPOW)
    Status: bypassed new
    Residual error from previous boot.
    EPOW Sensor Value: 00000002
    EPOW warning due to loss of redundancy.
    EPOW general power fault.

    I've no clue why firmware thought it was OK to report this
    during one of the earliest calls to RTAS; I'm still investiigating
    that.
