As Stephen said, please fully document the new interfaces in netconsole.txt.

Please also cc netdev@...r.kernel.org on all networking-related patches.

Please try order things in a way which minimises the number of
forward-declarations, as long as such ordering doesn't make the code
illogical (it usually doesn't).

I think this whole function can be replaced by one call to kasprintf()

The error return from make_netdev_class_name() is being ignored here.
