net: support NETCONSOLE option via Kconfig
This patch introduces CONFIG_NETCONSOLE as an option to the Kconfig system. Joe Hershberger pointed out that it may not be entirely free of problems, as many boards predating the driver model define this symbol directly via include files. In case they're not properly migrated, their NetConsole might 'vanish' if they start to use CONFIG_NET or CONFIG_NETDEVICES. Signed-off-by: Bernhard Nortmann <> Acked-by: Joe Hershberger <>
