dmesg is as good as it gets. someone decided to replace boot logging
with a better system and do away with logging to boot log. I cannot
recall what was supposed to replace the boot.log file
console=/var/log/boot.log ?

That's plain ridiculous. How am I to troubleshoot error messages that
come up during boot? I can't exactly pause the boot.
A lot of boot messages do get into /var/log/messages, I don't know if this is the case if the machine hangs or locks up during boot.
