Subject[PATCH v3 -mm 8/9] netconsole: Support multiple logging targets
From: Satyam Sharma <satyam@infradead.org>

[8/9] netconsole: Support multiple logging targets

This patch introduces support for multiple targets, independent of
CONFIG_NETCONSOLE_DYNAMIC -- this is useful even in the default case and
(including the infrastructure introduced in previous patches) doesn't
really add too many bytes to module text. All the complexity (and size)
comes with the dynamic reconfigurability / userspace interface patch,
and so it's plausible users may want to keep this enabled but that
disabled (say to avoid a dependency on CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS too).

Also update documentation to mention the use of ";" separator to specify
multiple logging targets in the boot/module option string.

Brief overview:

We maintain a target_list (and corresponding lock). Get rid of the static
"default_target" and introduce allocation and release functions for our
netconsole_target objects (but keeping sure to preserve previous behaviour
such as default values). During init_netconsole(), ";" is used as the
separator to identify multiple target specifications in the boot/module
option string. The target specifications are parsed and netpolls setup.
During exit, the target_list is torn down and all items released.

+It also supports logging to multiple remote agents by specifying

+complete string enclosed in "quotes", thusly:

+ modprobe netconsole netconsole="@/,@10.0.0.2/;@/eth1,6892@10.0.0.3/"

Built-in netconsole starts immediately after the TCP stack is
initialized and attempts to bring up the supplied dev at the supplied
address.
