How do you handle environments where one dump takes e.g. 3 seconds?
Counting delay between first message in previous dump and first message
in next dump is not safe. Unless we count delay between last message
in previous dump and first message in next dump, we cannot guarantee
that the system won't lockup due to printk() flooding.
