which are the lines which tell the state it's restarting from?
The way the button does it (you can just read the script if you want):
1) dmesg -c > tempfile -> rename tempfile to date/time titled document.
(The '-c' clears the message buffer after outputting it.)
press button before desired action dump
press button after desired action
The second document (later date/timestamp) will have only the messages *after* the first document.
That is: You could (later) cat the two together if you wanted both in one document file.
I did it that way because the most common use case is to capture only the things before/after a specific **something**.
