Its difficult or impossible to save the state of the kernel and restore the
shadow copy. Its probably easier to save the state of a user program instead
and restore it should the process dump core. Q to you:- what do you plan to
do when saved copy of kernel contains information of a process that exited
after copy was saved but before the kernel panic'ed required to be restored?
