Automated kernel crash reporting system

Hi Dan, 

Automatic reporting would end up being a mess given that panics can be caused by hardware problems. Having an autoreport check if memtest was run before it reports, or having it only run with -CURRENTmight be useful.

Hi Dan,

I am assuming that the output of crashinfo_enable="YES" is not what you 
are talking about is it ? are you aware of it ?

The info contained in the crashinfo.txt.N is pretty informative for 
developers, maybe your talking about another way of submitting it ?
