I understand the desire to make error messages more friendly, but I’m not entirely sure about this one:

[ 297.708539] Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason 3d on CPU 0.
[ 297.708556] Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled?
[ 297.708558] Dazed and confused, but trying to continue

That would be the end of the output from dmesg on my Ubuntu desktop after I restarted it from a strange failure. That message was the only interesting thing in the log but sadly, it doesn’t really help.
