 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.
