My main point is to get KASSERT() back again.

I also don't think we did reach a consensus about this either.
With DDB on panic you don't get a core dump, you just see the system

With trace (assuming you're not running X11), you have the usefull panic
message scroll away on a standard VGA screen.

Was this ever evaluated ? I have DIAGNOSTIC in all my kernels,
and I never noticed a difference in performances for real usages.
