Yes. It grovels a kernel core image that's been dumped in swapspace
after a crash. It was looking in the kernel namelist for the address
of the global _time variable to see when the kernel had crashed and
record that in the log. This variable was replaced with something
else with the recent merge of timecounters to NetBSD-current.
