Oh, thanks.

OK, well since we are talking here about serial log, then we probably
can just add printk("dump logbuf:\n"). It will appear before the
FLUSH_ALL output. Or we can just tweak panic code a bit - anything
panic_print_sys_info() prints can be "after" end of panic marker.

Basically, just move pr_emerg("---[ end Kernel panic...") a bit. I don't
quite understand why is it at the bottom - we don't always print end of
panic maker, e.g. when panic_timeout != 0. Not sure if this was
