Trace buffer size not checked if fits in memory

Hybrid build hrev28827 with 200 MiB trace buffer run under QEMU with 200 MiB hangs after showing the boot screen; none of the boot icons are alight. F12 doesn't open the KDL.

qemu -s and gdb provided the following backtrace

Obviously 200 MiB is more than the default 128 MiB RAM size in QEMU. qemu -m 400 makes Haiku work just fine!

Too bad the kernel debugger isn't shown on screen when Haiku panics at such an early stage (#3238). If it did show up, it would be reasonable to panic with a message "Trace buffer too large".

And resizing the trace buffer or at least disabling tracing.

Status: newclosed

Since you have to compile your own kernel in order to use that feature in the first place, you should also be able to adapt the memory requirement as needed. If the tracing ever gets always enabled, the situation would be different, of course.
