Hey Mike, how would I access the platform error log after that? I
recently had a problem where the panic message never appeared on
console, but I guess the "ibm,os-term" call caused the partition to
reboot instantly (i.e. no waiting for 180 seconds or whatever). So the
result was boot kernel -> instant reboot, without any error message.
