I did transfer the System.map file over from the machine that OOPSed, by
the way, so the symbols should be correct.

How much information does ksymoops get from the running kernel, and how
much does it get from the System.map and the OOPS output? Does it get the
disassembler output from the OOPS output or the running kernel?
