+Usage of Netconsole within LUV
Perhaps you can start by stating the use of netconsole. Something like
netconsole allows you to listen to debug messages on a "listening"
system via network.

You could mention a command the user could use in Linux to obtain the IP
+Choose the ip address and port number where you want all messages to sent to.
+once decided , you can replace the dummy ip address and port number given
as netconsole=@,email@example.com/ with the port number and ipaddress
+The grub.cfg file is located in boot partition. The location is
+EFI/BOOT/grub.cfg. Edit the file to replace the numbers and notation should be
+preserved for identifying the difference between ipaddress and port number.
Hmm a limitation here can be that the boot partition is not visible in
Windows system as Windows only allows to mount the first partitions it
finds in a removable disk. Unfortunately, the result partition is the
first partition. However, it seems to me that netconsole could take the
parameters from any file and not strictly from the kernel parameters
(you modprobe netconsole and configure it in your netconsole script).
Thus, a good solution could be to have a file in the results partition
that your script can access.
