Description (partial)

Currently WLC will lose msglogs and traplogs info after reboot.. and not many mid-size or small customers deploy syslog..
Getting this from the device for any reload or crash may be of little help.. 

So the idea is - when ever we see a reboot on the WLC (Planned / Unplanned / Crash / Silent Crash), we should have a mechanism to save the latest msglogs and the trap logs on the flash.. may be in a buffer where in the next reload may overwrite the last logs what was collected..

Implementation Idea

•	allocate two circular buffer files out of flash, one for msglog, one for traplog, maybe 1MB each or something
•	if the tracing feature is enabled, then every 10 minutes or so, flush the last 10 minutes' worth of msgs and traps into the files
•	as part of the WLC's crash handler, flush out the latest msgs and traps to the file

We already have this feature on the AP - eventlog gets saved after a reboot

when ever we see a reboot on the WLC (Planned / Unplanned / Crash / Silent Crash)
