As long as you get a dmesg and console entry for the critical-over case,
I don't care where it gets handled. So envsys would be prefered for

You won't get a dmesg unless we leave the aprint_*() calls. Normally, you only get syslog/console messages from sysmon_envsys when a monitored sensor generates an event.
