I think we might be talking at cross-purposes here. What does the kernel do
if it panics before the /etc/rc script is run ? (i.e. before the dumpon
command is issued ). I can't believe that it reads /etc/rc.conf and locates
the dump_dev entry to determine where it should put the crash dump. In
4.4BSD one could specify:

config kernel root on <device> swap on <device> dump on <device>

but this no longer exists in FreeBSD ? Is this right, and why ?
