+Kernel log buffer length shift
+CONFIG_LOG_BUF_SHIFT
+ The kernel log buffer has a fixed size of :
+ 64 kB (2^16) on MULTIQUAD and IA64,
+ 128 kB (2^17) on S390
+ 32 kB (2^15) on SMP systems
+ 16 kB (2^14) on UP systems
+
+ You have the ability to change this size with this paramter which
+ fixes the bit shift of to get the buffer length (which must be a
+ power of 2). Eg: a value of 16 sets the buffer to 64 kB (2^16).
+ The default value of 0 uses standard values above.
