    Small correction: those numbers, as produced by klogd, are decimal, not hex.
    It's too bad that we have this inconsistency, klogd should probably be modified
    to print hex numbers. I know it made we waste quite a bit of time trying to
    match them with objdump's hex addresses (of System.map) until I realized they
    were decimal.
