    SubjectRe: [PATCH] *(int*)0 = 0 & variations
    assert should definitely be more informative, and an assertion failure
    is more than a debug statement. The following functions more like the
    userland version:

    #ifndef NDEBUG
    # define kassert(cond) \
    if (!(cond)) { \
    printk (KERN_ERR "kassert failed in function %s, file %s, line %d:
    %s\n", \
    __FUNCTION__, \
    __FILE__, \
    __LINE__, \
    __STRING(cond)); \
    *(int*)0 = 0; \
    # define kassert(cond)

    You could put some additional switches in there to enable or disable the
    oops after the printk, or to change KERN_ERR to something else.
