I have something particular I am testing now (probably a nouveau

sure if it will be early enough even if it is built in. I won't know
until sometime tomorrow. But if it does get loaded early enough to
handle video card related stuff, it seems like it be worth having
built into debug kernels.
The crash appears appears to be happening too early to send netconsole
output even when netconsole is builtin to the kernel.
Also I may have been wrong about it not being built in, as I am not finding
a netconsole.ko in /usr/lib/modules. The config file for Fedora normally has:
But maybe enabling the dynamic feature forces it to be built in now?
It looks like I'll need to try something else to get the beginning of
the traceback from the crashes.
