      net: Make netconsole src and dest ports configurable · 7f51898c
      Joe Hershberger authored
      It is desirable to use different port numbers for sending and receiving
      packets with netconsole in the case where you have more than one device
      on the local subnet with netconsole enabled for broadcast.  When they
      use the same port for both, any output from one will look like input to
      the other.  This is typlically not desirable.
      
      This patch allows the input and output ports to be specified separately
      in the environment.

      tools/netconsole: use ncb automatically if available · c73fdc2f
      Mike Frysinger authored
      The standard netcat, while ubiquitous, doesn't handle broadcast udp packets
      properly.  The local ncb util does however.  So if ncb can be located in
      the standard locations, automatically use that instead.

      tools/netconsole: make a bit more robust · 9914be9d
      Mike Frysinger authored
      The netcat utility likes to exit when it receives an empty packet (as it
      thinks this means EOF).  This can easily occur when working with command
      line editing as this behavior will be triggered when using backspace.  Or
      with tabs and command line completion.  So create two netcat processes -
      one to only listen (and put it into a loop), and one to do the sending.
      Once the user quits the transmitting netcat, the listening one will be
      killed automatically.
