No, *you* don't understand what we're saying: pre-systemd, if the o/p saw that 
one stmt before the panic, they could look at what the system was doing 
*sequentially*, and so have an idea what it was failing on. With systemd's 
parallelism, we have no clue, other than what it's done, and no idea what's 
happening that's failing.
