How do I go about doing that? Copy kernel.debug to /var/crash? That
allows only a single kernel to be debugable. There is no unque filename
I can think of that gives us what putting the symbols beside the kernel
If it helps get better bug reports from users in -CURRENT (the
in-development version), isn't it worth a little disk space.
