This is a tiny bit different because netconsole goes through netpoll
which is responsible for doing the interface configuration. Unlike root
over NFS, this does not utilize net/ipv4/ipconfig.c, so the existing DSA
checks in that file are not used. The same "cure" could be applied, but
I am not sure if it will be accepted, we shall see.
