Heh, not a bad idea... Is there a way to hard-code the dump device into 
the kernel configuration? This crash happens too early for rc.conf to 
have any effect.

I tried building the kernel with online debugging enabled, but my USB 
keyboard doesn't work after the panic (and the box has no PS/2 ports).
