kernel automatically restart if there is a panic
I've never actually seen a kernel panic, but I do understand that some sort of message is printed on the screen. What I am wondering is if there is a way to have the function that displays the 'kernel panic' message, call the kernel/BIOS function that does a hard reboot of the computer?
The kernel has a function that tells the BIOS to restart, so that function should still be callable from the kernel panic function, right.
Is there an existing patch for doing this?
