A more certain way is to use serial-console facility which
logs oopses reliably (polled serial port drivers, you see)
to the remote host.

Configure character devices
-> Standard/generic serial (dumb) serial support
-> Support for console on serial port

All you need is serial cable at 9600 bps, and some configuring,
plus some program to log from serial port at the other host.
(I use kermit ;-) )
