In other to understand/fix https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=592989
I'd need to get the kernel log of the installation kernel (which works, while
the installed kernel doesn't) to compare it with the kernel log of the
installed kernel. I tried to add log_buf_len=2M ignore_loglevel to the kernel
command line,
but in tty2 of the installation kernel, using dmesg, I can only get the tail of
the kernel log, not the beginning of it. I would like to save it to a USB key
for inspection reporting and comparison with the kernel log of the installed
kernel.

Reproducible: Always
