tapset::panic — systemtap panic tapset

Description

Functions in the panic tapset allow a probe handler to invoke
the system panic routine with a user-specified message.

This may be used with a crash dump collection facility such as
kexec/kdump in order to capture data for post-mortem debugging.

Due to the fact that this will bring the system to an immediate
halt the functions in this tapset require guru mode.

panic

trigger a panic
