Description Prarit Bhargava 2009-02-06 11:25:43 EST
Description of problem:

For a long time now, one of my pet peeves about the panic/oops output is that it does not include the kernel version in the text.

See BZ 483814, filed by a fellow RH engineer. 

While this is probably not useful for upstream, it is for us.
