Did you check if the required features  are  enabled  in  your  board

You did not search thoroughly; I find more that 60 files:

	-> find * -type f | xargs egrep 6666 | wc -l

One of them is - big surprise - drivers/netconsole.c

Seems you did not read the documentation either.  Please  reread  the
doc/README.NetConsole  file,  now  from  beginning  to  end,  and pay
special attention when it talsk  about  "some  distributives  (Fedora
Core 5 at least)" - this could be important to your problem.

It can. You just have to do it right.
