Re: More detailed build infomation in kernels

The multi-line BUILDINFO strings are truncated and folded to a
single line by uname(3), which is unhelpful, so I am inclined to
store them in a new kernel variable, exposed via a new sysctl
node, instead of appending to the existing kernel version
variable. Then the new information would not be exposed by
uname(3) or uname(1).
Sounds useful to me.
Perhaps you could take the first line of BUILDINFO for uname, and
expose the rest via sysctl kern.buildinfo?
