     NOCOL Environment Variable

This might be useful for some of you, so I thought I'd post it here; just
another user-friendly configuration option you can stick in your .cshrc.
This will set the default severity to a different level if you have
your NOCOL_DEFAULT_SEVERITY environment variable set.  

Throw this in netconsole.c right after the default severity is set (around
line 107)...

   (char) *levelenv = getenv("NOCOL_DEFAULT_SEVERITY");

    if (*levelenv != NULL) {
      if (strcmp("CRITICAL", *levelenv) == 0) level = E_CRITICAL;
      if (strcmp("ERROR", *levelenv) == 0) level = E_ERROR;
      if (strcmp("WARNING", *levelenv) == 0) level = E_WARNING;
      if (strcmp("INFO", *levelenv) == 0) level = E_INFO;

you'll also need to define 'char *levelenv[15]' in netconsole.h somewhere.
