PANIC(9)                                                 PANIC(9)

     NAME
          panic - abandon hope, all ye who enter here

     SYNOPSIS
          void panic(char *fmt, ...)

     DESCRIPTION
          Panic writes a message to the console and causes the system
          to give up the host.  It enables interrupts, dumps the ker-
          nel stack, and halts the current processor; if more than
          one, others will gradually come to a halt.  Depending on
          configuration settings, the platform-dependent exit might
          reboot the system.  The format fmt and associated arguments
          are the same as those for print(9). Panic adds a prefix
          `panic: ' and a trailing newline.
