        The kernel debugger has some option and sysctl-variables to control
        the behaviour, e.g. ddb.onpanic or DDB_ONPANIC.
        Accedently the description for DDB_FROMCONSOLE (or ddb.fromconsole)
        is missing in the man pages.
        Try to find any information about DDB_FROMCONSOLE kernel option in
        the man pages. At least I haven't found anything.
        The kernel variable is listed in sysctl man-page, but without any
        additional information what it is for.
        Add a short description to ddb manual to describe DDB_FROMCONSOLE
        kernel option and/or ddb.fromconsole sysctl-variable..
