Hi,

This looks like what Tony wanted, pstore.

So, 'cat /sys/firmware/efi/vars/LinuxKmsgDump*/data' will show
the whole kernel messages? And in the right order?

Also ,will these data be flushed after the next next boot? If not, how
can they be flushed/deleted?

You ignored errors here.

We don't split strings like this.

You don't need to memset a static gloabl var to 0.

There is a global var with the same name, right?
