KMSG_DUMP_GET_BUFFER(9) Driver Basics KMSG_DUMP_GET_BUFFER(9)NAME
kmsg_dump_get_buffer - copy kmsg log lines
bool kmsg_dump_get_buffer(struct kmsg_dumper * dumper, bool syslog, char * buf, size_t size, size_t * len);
registered kmsg dumper
include the "<4>" prefixes
buffer to copy the line to
maximum size of the buffer
length of line placed into buffer
Start at the end of the kmsg buffer and fill the provided buffer with as many of the the *youngest* kmsg records that fit into it. If the
buffer is large enough, all available kmsg records will be copied with a single call.
Consecutive calls will fill the buffer with the next block of available older records, not including the earlier retrieved ones.
A return value of FALSE indicates that there are no more records to read.

dmesg - print or control the kernel ring buffer
dmesg [ -c ] [ -n level ] [ -s bufsize ]
dmesg is used to examine or control the kernel ring buffer.
The program helps users to print out their bootup messages. Instead of copying the messages by hand, the user need only:
dmesg > boot.messages
and mail the boot.messages file to whoever can debug their problem.
OPTIONS -c Clear the ring buffer contents after printing.
Use a buffer of size bufsize to query the kernel ring buffer. This is 16392 by default. (The default kernel syslog buffer size was
4096 at first, 8192 since 1.3.54, 16384 since 2.1.113.) If you have set the kernel buffer to be larger than the default then this
option can be used to view the entire buffer.
Set the level at which logging of messages is done to the console. For example, -n 1 prevents all messages, expect panic messages,
from appearing on the console. All levels of messages are still written to /proc/kmsg, so syslogd(8) can still be used to control
exactly where kernel messages appear. When the -n option is used, dmesg will not print or clear the kernel ring buffer.
When both options are used, only the last option on the command line will have an effect.

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file.
