Description

I am setting my dumpdev in the loader, so that panics in the kernel boot can also be dumped. However, with latest HEAD, this panics: (transcript)

dump_conf
setdumpdev
dev_dioctl
diskioctl
dsioctl

problem is this line:

if (slice >= ssp->dss_nslices)

because ssp == NULL. probably this is not initialized that early in the boot.

i've worked around it by commenting out my dumpdev line in loader.conf.

in case it's needed, i'm dumping to /dev/ad4s1d.

cheers

Ok, should be fixed now.
