The whole world of netpoll is not netconsole even though it just
happens to be that way currently.  Otherwise we can just eliminate
the modularity completely and merge all of netconsole into
net/core/netpoll.c but of course we won't do that.

If another user of netpoll comes by we'll just have to add this thing
back again.

I'm dropping this patch.
