I am trying to get netconsole up and running on a 8260 kernel (2.6.7)

My problem is that the netconsile driver seems to start (and abort) way
too eraly for the 8260. The FCC ethernet drivcer is not initialized yet,
so the netconsiole driver aborts because it cannot find the ethernet

Anybody know how to delay the startup of the netconsole driver to after
FCC ethernets are up?
