        After a kernel panic and subsequent core dump (either
        automatically or by a 'reboot 0x104' from ddb), savecore finds
        a dump but claims it is unreadable:

Checking for core dump...
savecore: reboot after panic: panic: LOCKDEBUG
Apr 30 17:15:55 Vertatscha savecore: reboot after panic: panic: LOCKDEBUG
savecore: system went down at Thu Apr 30 17:02:46 2009
savecore: (null): Bad address
Apr 30 17:15:55 Vertatscha savecore: (null): Bad address

        I am making this 'kern' because I guess savecore is intimately
        tied to the kernel. Feel free to move the PR elsewhere.


        Experience or force a system core dump. Find it's not readable.

        No idea.
