Perhaps you need to add a word or two about limitations compared to netconsole
in documentation because it is quite significant difference in reliability? I
mean so it is not assumed it is analogous to netconsole but just a different
underlying media. I don't know if someone would expect it, but better said
than not.

I second the notion that logging to partitions would be useful.

Also, and I haven't checked what the swap format is, if it could somehow be
integrated together that could be useful.
