The change is straightforward:

The comment below is just a lamentation about the netconsole code.

Just for record:

This looks like a (mis)use of CON_ENABLED flag. It took me some time
to understand why pre-enabled consoles are handled special way in
register_console(). I partly documented it in
try_enable_preferred_console():

	/*
	 * Some consoles, such as pstore and netconsole, can be enabled even
	 * without matching. Accept the pre-enabled consoles only when match()
	 * and setup() had a chance to be called.
	 */
	if (console_is_enabled(newcon) && (c->user_specified == user_specified))
		return 0;

In my bottom driver, I have a patch cleaning this. It is part of a bigger
clean up that is not ready for upstream :-/

Best Regards,
Petr
