Not doing a printk while holding the lock which will block the printk
is one way:

--- a/drivers/net/8139too.c~a
+++ a/drivers/net/8139too.c
@@ -1358,7 +1358,7 @@ static void rtl_check_media (struct net_
struct rtl8139_private *tp = netdev_priv(dev);

if (tp->phys[0] >= 0) {
- mii_check_media(&tp->mii, netif_msg_link(tp), init_media);
+ mii_check_media(&tp->mii, 0, init_media);
}
}

_
however it might be smarter to disable NETIF_MSG_LINK on that interface
if it is being used for netconsole.
