### Explanation
The best way is to use `dmesg` command and direct the output to a file. A problem with dmesg is, that it uses the kernel log buffer, which may wrap around. Therefore, use `log_buf_len=1M` on the kernel command line to increase the log buffer size to 1MB. The wraparound can be noticed by looking at the first lines in a dmesg output, it should be something like this (may vary according to kernel version):

The benefits of using `dmesg` command are:
* you get all kernel messages, also from debug level
