Architecture: arm
Machine: shark

Due to the way the bootable kernel is wrapped in aout format, savecore
doesn't work (probably all kvm grovelers will fail).


drowsy# savecore /var/crash
savecore: /netbsd: _dumpdev not in namelist
drowsy# nm /netbsd
nm: /netbsd: no symbols

Always copy the elf kernel to / too and make that the default for kvm 
grovelers? Enhance the a.out wrapping?
