Re: Spin on failure?

Do you mean a gnumach panic, or a Hurd panic that reboots?

For a gnumach panic to spin instead of reboot, you need to edit panic in
kern/debug.c and make it call halt_all_cpus(0) instead of halt_all_cpus(1).

If you are talking about a Hurd panic, then it calls host_reboot.  If it's
init calling host_reboot, then you can diddle that call to use the RB_HALT
flag (set crash_flags in hurd/init/init.c).
