You forget that a device-disabling userspace crash will most likely not
leave any hints about the reason on screen, so the exercise seems
completely pointless. It looks nice in theory, but of all crashes which
would render userspace dead, I can't imagine one which would give you
the nice error message you want.

Feel free to correct me.
