Do you know what happens if you call panic() before cninit()?  The
reason I tried the big kluge was that I haven't been able to 
successfully move enough of what seem to be the pre-requisites to
cninit() to before the first spot panic() gets called.  If panic()
can be called before cninit() gets run then moving stuff around might
be easier.
