This does not seem to be the way to go around this, I would rather
specifying eth0.<VID> on the netconsole parameters and automatically
create a VLAN interface from that which would ensure that everything
works properly and that the VLAN interface is linked to its lower device
properly.

If you prefer your current syntax, that is probably fine, too but you
should consider registering a VLAN device when you parse appropriate
options.
