What's the fastest type of device NetBSD can dump to?
On sd, it dumps about 3MB/s, making 4GB take ~20 minutes.
Some sort of flash device would be nice.

Probably not really answering the question, but:
NetBSD 5.0/i386's release announcement mentions sparse kernel core dumps.
I wonder if that may help if you're on !i386...
