just for completeness:

with OpenWrt there is a feature where you have a "protected" area
in RAM which is not lost during reboot and used for having a crashlog
safed over a reboot. ("crashlog.o") see e.g:

https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/target/linux/generic/patches-4.4/930-crashlog.patch

we have extended this for always keeping a good timestamp over reboot.
ofcourse this does not work with a cold reboot.

bye, bastian
