netconsole does syslog with levels, too. I agree netdump/netconsole
have complete awful configuration. I was thinking netlink would be a
good configurator.

The kernel printk <foo> prefixes map into syslog quite nicely.

In any case, there is my own active effort into cleaning up netdump to
be less x86-specific, and get it ready for mainline.

Maybe we can start discussing converging all these implementations on
netdev@oss.sgi.com? (that's where the networking developers live)
