If a BUG macro is tripped (executed) the kernel oopses. It won't stall
(well, actually it will: forever ;-), but it'll present a message about
what went wrong, along with the C file and line number of the BUG macro,
plus the usual oops output. Think of it as an abort() in kernel space,
but it can't, of course, dump core...yet.

medieval traditions of sorcery and black art.
