In the /etc/init.d/bootmisc file, the following activity is ran that generates an OOPS in the kernel (3.7-hardened):
dmesg > /var/log/dmesg
Running 'dmesg > /tmp/dmesg' doesn't trigger the oops, nor does moving /tmp/dmesg to /var/log/dmesg. Commenting out the activity (or replacing it with the following excerpt) makes the system behave as needed (no oops).
dmesg > /tmp/dmesg
mv /tmp/dmesg /var/log/dmesg
chcon -t var_log_t /var/log/dmesg
Oops will be attached.
