The Linux kernel logs information in a ring buffer as it runs.  That log
can be viewed by invoking the "dmesg" tool.  The tool is available in
the "util-linux" package.

The same messages will eventually be logged to syslog, and on Guix
System I think the default place they are stored is /var/log/messages.
The ring buffer contains only the most recent messages.
