No, since a dump may happen temporally far enough away from boot time
that the offset would not be contained in the dmesg buffers any more.
The offset report needs to be part of the panic message, especially
for those using pstore (e.g. Chrome OS0 for crash reporting (which
includes only the panic log contents).
