Probably not needed.  If you just set ddb.onpanic to 2 it should cause a

You can just do the same with sysctl ddb.onpanic=2...


Thanks for the pointer, so on a fresh system which doesn't have NetBSD

how would I set that?

If you can boot _something_ then boot -d to get an initial breakpoint entry into ddb. Then just update the global variable db_onpanic to 1
