Setup dumpon/savecore and friends to aid debugging
On systems where we have a swap partition (read: full installs) we should setup the equivalent of the FreeBSD scripts /etc/rc.d/dumpon and /etc/rc.d/savecore and the dumpdev/dumpdir variables, to aid in debugging. textdump would be ideal.

dumpon/savecore are now run at boot on full installs (with swap space). Of course you'll need enough swap space to hold the contents of RAM, but since the installer normally does RAM*2 it should be OK for most.
It should show up in the next snapshot.
Dumps will show up in /var/crash/
