I'm new to kernel hacking and I was wondering if someone could help me
out here.
I want to debug some code I wrote as an extension to the NetBSD 1.2 kernel.
I had intended to call syslog() in my code and check the syslog files
much like one would use printf() statements, but when I compiled the
kernel I was unable to link; with the compiler complaining that __syslog
is not a defined symbol in TEXT.
Am I missing something?
Is there a similar feature to syslog() that I can use within kernel code?

Can anyone recommend a better way of debugging kernel code?

thanks much.
