throw this in /etc/rc.local, or make an init script, and/or throw a wrapper around it to make it persistant. Syslog data is currently only saved in memory which is limited to 0-XMB depending on what you're doing. This will throw everything into an actual log file and retain data after reboot. Code is probbaly ugly but made sense at 2am and seems to work:

#!/bin/sh
#Change whatever paths and filenames you want, feel free to modify as needed
sdcard="/sd"
log="$sdcard"/syslog/syslog

if [ ! -d "$sdcard" ]; then
    echo "Please mount your sd card and set the \"sdcard\" variable"
elif
    [ ! -d "$sdcard"/syslog ]; then
        mkdir "$sdcard"/syslog
            if [ -e "$log" ]; then
                /sbin/logread -f >> "$log"
            else
                /sbin/logread > "$log"
                /sbin/logread -f >> "$log"
            fi
else
    if [ -e "$log" ]; then
        /sbin/logread -f >> "$log"
    else
        /sbin/logread > "$log"
        /sbin/logread -f >> "$log"
    fi
fi
