SubjectRE: [PATCH 0/2] make all stored entries accessible.

It would avoid the need for all these tests, and additions to the filename to guarantee
uniqueness.

Not sure what options efivars has to create a unique, persistent "id" for each
record. It's a fundamental part of how ERST works (though the unique ID is just
based around a timestamp).

after I added the "count = 0" initialization the filename gets a tiny bit less
scary:

-r--r--r-- 1 root root 17499 Oct 30 13:41 dmesg-erst-5940651313304961029-0-1383165669
