CLOG support in syslogd

    I think a bigger worry for writing a log file to a flash filesystem
    would be, well, writing the log file to a flash filesystem.  Even 
    a million-cycle flash card can wear out fairly quickly if syslog is
    operating on it, no matter what the format.  It would probably be better
    to write a custom logger rather then use syslog, or syslog to RAM and
    have a cron job copy it out to flash in a cycle-controllable way (like
    once an hour).
