There would appear to be a number of panic messages in the kernel that
are not unique, giving panic/crash diagnosis an extra ounce of difficulty.
Whilst I'm well aware of other mechanisms such as that used by Solaris
present a unique identifier for each message, I'd like to recommend an
interim step of doing something simple to make each message different.
This might be as simple as numbering them or as complex as changing them
to better reflect the condition.

What do others feel about this sort of change ?
