Re: kern/41310: NetBSD 5 savecore does not said:
> It was good to drop use of getbootfile(3)

While we are here: The kernel saved by savecore is usually
useless for me, for multiple reasons:
-getbootfile(3) doesn't work if the kernel wasn't loaded
 from the root file system (eg by TFTP)
-even if it works this is not necessarily the kernel
 belonging to the crash dump
-I have a netbsd.gdb in the kernel build directory which
 is obviously better for debugging.
So I would like some option to savecore(8) which makes
that it just saves the crashdump but doesn't care
about the kernel.

best regards
