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", \
__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.
