A recent post mentions that U-Boot now has netconsole features, at least 
on the ocotea PPC440 board. What type of functionality does this 
provide? I did find, on the web, that netconsole is UDP based at is 
typically used as a networked console for kernel debugging.

Does this imply a "one-way" output connection only or does it allow a 
remote connection into the target - similar to telnet.

Our project requires remote network access to U-Boot because the 
deployed the system will not include a serial port.
