Those tenacious barbarians

Input please:

Does a barbarian continue to rage while unconscious (i.e. in negative hit points and dying)?

I think it's pretty apparent how the question is pertinent to a dying barbarian: ours had -7 including his bonus to Constitution from raging, and was very much Dead without that bonus. I ruled that, since losing hit points doesn't intrinsically change anything about your Con score, he was still merely dying (or "Mostly Dead"), got healed in the next round (before his rage ended), and was back in the fight. But I was surprised that I couldn't find anything to specify whether an unconscious barbarian keeps his rage or not; I mean, it turns out to be a life-or-death matter, eh? :P
