OK, this is what I would do. First get that kernel.img into
a working Linux, then do this:

$ strings kernel.img | grep 'Linux version'
Linux version 2.4.9-27-t1 (zaitcev@test1.stuttgart.redhat.com) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)) #1 SMP Mon Feb 11 22:09:45 CET 2002

Send the version string to Florian and ask him to find you
the corresponding System.map. I hope it lingers somewhere
in the build area...

In System.map find the log_buf value, say 2b1cc0.
IPL from the reader and when the thing crashes, say

d rux2b1cc0.200

512 bytes if often not enough, add more until you reach the
end of the trace. This assumes that your VM is fresh enough
to support EBCDIC to ASCII translation in the display.

By the way, since the trace always starts with "Linux", you
may try to skip getting System.map by asking the trace facility
to search core for the pattern "Linux" in ASCII. Here's the
hex values:

[zaitcev@s390 zaitcev]$ echo 'Linux version'| od -x
0000000 4c69 6e75 7820 7665 7273 696f 6e0a
[zaitcev@s390 zaitcev]$
