By the way, is it possible to force the kernel to dump core and reboot
(boot crash / boot dump) automaticaly on panic ?

And is using the 'makeoptions DEBUG="-g"' considered as getting away
of supported GENERIC ? the options(4) manpage isn't clear in this
point: does this change the produced 'bsd' file or only produce a
'bsd.gdb' beside a normal 'bsd' file ?
Can we create the bsd.gdb file without touching kernel config file
(eg. is 'makeoption DEBUG="-g"' equivalent to pass CFLAGS=-g at
compile time ?).

Does this option work on hppa hardware ?
