Thanks. I've figure this out, but still see some problems. I've created a 
panic during the manual kernel debuging session and after reboot found a 
textdump file in a /var/crash directory, but unexpectedly i can not untar 

root at orion-vm:/var/crash# bsdtar -xf textdump.tar.0                                                                                                                          
bsdtar: Unrecognized archive format: Inappropriate file type or format
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
root at orion-vm:/var/crash# file textdump.tar.0                                                                                                                                
textdump.tar.0: data
root at orion-vm:/var/crash# ls -la textdump.tar.0
