Subject: [PATCH x86 for review III] [11/29] i386: add option to show more code in oops reports
Date: Mon, 12 Feb 2007 17:51:31 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070212165131.56C0313F45@wotan.suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070212551.664370000@suse.de>


From: Chuck Ebbert <cebbert@redhat.com>

Sometimes developers need to see more object code in an oops report,
e.g. when kernel may be corrupted at runtime.

Add the "code_bytes" option for this.
