Since XMD is also a Tcl shell, you can easily download __log_buf like this:

    set fd [open xmd.log w]
    puts $fd [mrd  0xc0259fa4 10]

Then, with a little tweaking, you could use xxd or some other tool to
convert it to ASCII.

My guess is that if you issue a rst (reset) command, I think this will
take the processor out of virtual mode and then you can strip of the
0xc0000000.  But looks like you got what you need anyways, so no need
for this :-)
