Sorry, but this is not what I was asking for.

Please submit with a coherent changelog based on (i.e. digested from)
the previous discussion which explains why this change is necessary
including the background of why it is being made in this way and the
interaction with the bridging layer. I wasn't asking you to just cut and
paste that discussion and prepend it to the commit like that.

The key point is that we don't think that doing netconsole from dom0 to
a domU on the same host is a useful configuration or something which is
especially desirable to support but that because of how the bridge
handles netconsole netback needs to expose this hook in order that
netconsole can be enabled via a physical device on the same bridge to a
netserver elsewhere.
