Subject: Re: [PATCH] stack2core: show stack message and convert it to core 
	file when kernel die

I didn't give the user raw oopses.
I give him core file. When the kernel die, do we can get a core file now?


(gdb) bt
#0  0xc0008470 in kernel_init (unused=<value optimized out>)
  at /home/teawater/kernel/arm_versatile_926ejs.glibc_std.standard/build/linux/init/main.c:916

  at /home/teawater/kernel/arm_versatile_926ejs.glibc_std.standard/build/linux/kernel/exit.c:1798
Backtrace stopped: previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)

It show which line make kernel die.
