I'm not sure how this can relate netconsole since this happens before
the guest even runs, doesn't it?

Which domain is using netconsole? Is it dom0 or domU? What parameters do
you give it?

I assume it is the domU but if that's the case I don't see why a netback
rather than netfront patch would be required.

Or is dom0 doing netconsole where the log receiver is a domU?
