I tried to extend your patch with these fields, but I am not sure I got
it right, so please, send a new patch, I'll run the reboot corruption
test with your patch.

Please, note, because this test is about reboots, I'll probably output
everything to the serial console. Therefore, please, do not print too
much data. Otherwise I'd have to modify my scripts to collect dmesg
before restarting, which is more work.

Artem.
