With stack traces (during kernel crashes) being usually quite long, extending 
the capacity of the screen to at least 80x30 (20%) may already be considered 
helpful. I'm certain the patches won't be accepted as-is (namely the change to 
the start_info structure), but I need to get an understanding at what the 
expectations are to then try to adjust them.
