Subject: Re: [PATCH] panic: keep blinking in spite of long spin timer mode

Thanks for this explanation, makes all sense. 
But should do these changes by default then, not with a parameter.

Changing the frequency is ok, the only requirement is that it is
visible and different from the frequency kdb uses.
