Subject[PATCH] Magic SysRq help
On more than one occasion I have been hit by a situation where I wished
I could remember which Magic SysRq key to use. So I wrote the following
patch: Alt+SysRq+h to print the list of keys, taken from the SysRq
Documentation. I thought I'd share it here, hoping that other people
would also find it useful. It's against 2.2.16 but probably works on
many other kernel versions too.
