The patch at the bottom of this message adds support so that
a board can choose to have a command line specified in
the .config file or hard-coded. This is similar to what is
in the ppc tree.  All this patch does is create a config
question and store the info in the config file.  It is up
to each board to read or not read this info.

Here is one example of its use:
>#ifndef CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL
>#define CONFIG_CMDLINE "console=ttyS0,38400 ip=any root=nfs rw"
>#endif
>char arcs_cmdline[CL_SIZE] = CONFIG_CMDLINE;

Dynamic setting of args like this will still work with out
any changes. 
>#ifdef CONFIG_NE2000
>        argptr = prom_getcmdline();
>        if ((argptr = strstr(argptr, "ne_eth=")) == NULL) { 
>                argptr = prom_getcmdline();
>                strcat(argptr, " ne_eth=0x6020280,29");
>        }
>#endif

To you this you may need to modify this fn keeping two
things in mind.  A) setting *arcs_cmdline to 0 unconditionally
will clear the .config/hard-coded default.  B) If the board
supports a f/w command line string that should probably
over-ride and .config/hard-coded default.
>void __init
>prom_init_cmdline(int argc, char **argv)
>{
>       int i;  /* Always ignore the "-c" at argv[0] */
>
>       /* ignore all built-in args if any f/w args given */
>       if (argc > 1) {
>               *arcs_cmdline = '\0';
>       }
>       for (i = 1; i < argc; i++) {
>               if (i != 1) {
>                       strcat(arcs_cmdline, " ");
>               }
>               strcat(arcs_cmdline, argv[i]);
>       }
>}
