    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)
