Oh! I just realised - you said you set boot_flags, right? It should be
Just in case, I also found two useful kernel parameters: "panic=n", where
n is the number of seconds to wait after displaying the panic message, and
"no-scroll", which disables VGA console scrolling. Theoretically, either
one of them should be sufficient for you to see the actual panic message.
And you can pass the parameters on the boot command line like this:
>>> boot dqa0 -flags "root=/dev/hda panic=10"
