dmesgd is a daemon that collects kernel memory error reports.
When system_server notices that a kernel error occured, it sets the
dmesgd.start system property to 1, which results in init starting
Once that happens, dmesgd runs `dmesg` and parses its output to collect
the last error report. That report, together with the headers containing
device- and build-specific information is stored in Dropbox.
Empirically, dmesgd needs the following permissions:
- execute shell (for popen()) and toolbox (for dmesg),
read system_log (for dmesg)
- read /proc/version (to generate headers)
- perform Binder calls to servicemanager and system_server,
find dropbox_service (for dropbox)
- create files in /data/misc/dmesgd (to store persistent state)
Test: run dmesgd on a user device with injected KFENCE bugs
