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”. This was probably commentary suggesting some concerns about virtual machine usage being so high, rather than concerns about getting too many reports (which are likely fairly identical-ish).

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