Let me clarify.  The IVI image has long had a functional dlogutil.  This
is a basic capability I use every day to debug breakage.

I'm not sure what changed, although an ivi kernel change is likely the
issue, but for some reason we do not automatically load the logger
kernel module.  I can get past this by modprobing the logger module.
