OpenBSD FAQ 4: section on “Sending your dmesg to dmesg@openbsd.org after the install

Theo de Raadt's commentary about virtual machine usage increasing has Theo noting, “In the last while, approximately one third of x86 (i386/amd64) dmesg's are from VM's.” ... “This is annoying”.

(On a side note: This may also be documented at: detecting hardware, “Reporting success” section.)
