Tony,

I tried to log kmsg into the kexec path months ago.
It was rejected due to the impelementation problem.

But, as Eric said, it should be OK if it is implemented in the kdump kenel.

The only problem with kdump here is the implementation in the initial
ram disk. Fixing the initial ramdisk so it logs to kmsg before it
touches scarier hardware should be the solution.
