Wouldn't total-bytes > 1000 than 33 in this example?

This path is executed only when msg_len > MAX_PRINT_CHUNK.
And since header_len == msg_len if body == NULL, chunk_len <= 0 is true.
We will hit this WARN_ON_ONCE() if memchr(msg, ';', msg_len) == NULL
which will fail to send the message. Is this what you want?

Don't you need to call netconsole_target_get() here

and netconsole_target_put() here as with write_msg()?
