Hm, wonder who's birthday that is...
In any case, while you're at it, maybe make `panicstr' be not a pointer
to the printf format, but rather the index into the message buffer of
the string, and have a "panicstr_end" which is the ending index. That
way, savecore(8) can get the expanded message, not:
panic: %s: %d out of range
The current "panicstr != NULL" can be replaced with
"panicstr != panicstr_end".
