Maybe I misunderstood what "KMSG_DUMP_OOPS" meant ... it
looked to me like this code is used for non-fatal OOPsen - ones
that will be logged to /var/log/messages.

You are right that the whole point of this is to save data from
fatal errors ... if I'm not doing that, then I'm happy to change
things until I achieve that goal.
