Hello NetBSD kernel gurus,
I am in the midst of porting a driver from FreeBSD to NetBSD. It would
be real helpful if I could increase the size of the DMESG buffer (msgbuf).
I'm building/testing under the AMD64 platform. I found 'msgbuf_p_cnt' in
/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/amd64/machdep.c which appears to be what controls
the size of msgbuf, but it's initialized to 0 and I don't see it ever set
or referenced anyplace else in the kernel! Obviously, I'm missing something.
I even tried adding the line 'kern.msgbufsize=131000' to /etc/sysctl.conf
and rebooting, but the size always shows up at 16352. What am I not seeing??
