    Because currently we check netpoll support by ->ndo_poll_controller,
    for example, tap driver doesn't have ->ndo_poll_controller now,
    if I choose the target "@" where "" is owned
    by "tap0" which is managed by "br0", netconsole may not work.

    I think ->ndo_poll_controller is not in the case that you talked about.
