Ok, I read the docs, and this is indeed a target MAC address. It may still
be easier to accept a regular MAC address like target_mac=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
as the module parameter (and a target_ip=A.B.C.D). In any case, here is a
script to automate this (ugly because of the conversions needed).

=========================================================================
#!/bin/sh
prog=netconsole-server
#
# initialize the netconsole using reasonable defaults (normally just the
# client IP address, and possibly the port. We can determine the MAC
# address of the client system, IP address, the correct device, and verify
# that we are using an ethernet interface (required for netconsole to work).

Initialize a network message console over UDP.

usage: $prog [-b] [-d dev] [-m mac] [-p port] target[:port]
-b - use broadcast ethernet MAC address
-m - specify remote system MAC address (default: detect)
-p - local port to use for message traffic (default: 6666)
-d - ethernet device to use for messages (default: detect)
target - hostname/IP address of remote netconsole-client
:port - port on target netconsole-client (default: like -p)
