Syslog-only not available

Description of problem:
The documentation at
that "You can, if you wish, set up syslog only, and not netdump, by
leaving NETDUMPADDR unset and setting only SYSLOGADDR.".
This is desirable functionality which is unavailable because
/etc/rc.d/init.d/netdump checks whether $NETDUMPADDR is set and exits
with "Server address not specified in /etc/sysconfig/netdump" if it is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define SYSLOGADDR in /etc/sysconfig/netdump
2. Leave NETDUMPADDR undefined
3. service syslog start
Actual Results: "Server address not specified in
/etc/sysconfig/netdump" dumped to console.
Expected Results: Syslogging to remote host on kernel oops.
An up to date list of NICs which support netdump would be very handy...
