netconsole: take care of NETDEV_UNREGISTER event

When netconsole is loaded and a network interface fades away (e.g. on
rmmod $interface_driver_module) the rmmod remains stuck and some locks
are taken that prevent any additional module loading/unloading as well
as interface up/down changes.
In addition kernel logs (and console) get flooded at 10s interval with

[  122.464065] unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 1
[  132.704059] unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 1

This patch lets netconsole take NETDEV_UNREGISTER event into account
and release the affected interface if it was in use.
