 I don't know about any of you, but savecore completely fails to work
 for me after 1.78 savecore.c; in particular, failing to set the
 booted kernel causes check_space to die a painful death:
        if (stat(kernel, &st) < 0) {
                syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s: %m", kernel);
 which causes the 'savecore: (null): Bad address' message seen so
 infamously as of late; I don't see how it could ever work, save 
 eliminating the (almost entirely useless, save for the mostly
 useless /minfree part) check_space logic.
