On a VGA console the "iip" is _sometimes_ still visible on the screen
after an oops (and if your users can only be trained to copy down one
number from an oops, this is the most useful one to have). Adding these
extra lines would guarantee that iip always scrolls off the top.

But I'd be fine sacrificing this in exchange for seeing all the
backing store registers.
