FS#2630 - consider building netconsole into kernel (or as module)

I have intermittent problems with my TP-Link (ipq806x) router locking up or rebooting. During these events, it’s rare to have anything in the logs (written to local persistent storage) or to the configured remote syslog server.

I looked into enabling netconsole in an effort to catch kernel messages during an event, but:

~/openwrt/openwrt-imagebuilder-18.06.4-ipq806x.Linux-x86_64$ find . -type f -exec grep -H NETCONSOLE {} \;
./build_dir/target-arm_cortex-a15+neon-vfpv4_musl_eabi/linux-ipq806x/linux-4.14.131/.config:# CONFIG_NETCONSOLE is not set
./target/linux/generic/config-4.9:# CONFIG_NETCONSOLE is not set
./target/linux/generic/config-4.14:# CONFIG_NETCONSOLE is not set

please consider building netconsole either into the kernel or as a loadable module.
