Ok, I'm being really thick here, but I can't get the Memory: lines to be
output by the kernel. It looks like I can't get any KERN_INFO or
KERN_DEBUG lines to be output no matter what I do to log level. I'm not
much of a kernel hacker, but is there some debug code that I need to
enable to get these messages? I've wandered through google, and the
kernel code but I can't find anything obvious.
