Err wait!

The most recent release of klogd tries to load /boot/System.map-`uname -r`
if it exists.  I have implemented it for exactly this reason (even
without someone filing a feature request).  Please take a look
at the manpage (I hope that I have updated it), at the changelog
files and at the source if it doesn't seem to work.

Remember thatn /System.map might be higher priority.
