    rather than fixing up the gazillions of existing BUG()'s we have
    littered through the tree, maybe we could default to current behaviour
    if no argument is passed ?

    Failing that, resurrecting the k_assert() idea someone proposed
    (jgarzik?) a few months back.

    One reason for doing this would be to make it less painful for people
    writing drivers that compile on 2.4/2.6
