I think that's a mistake. In a DT only case (no ATAGS), we'll get
different behaviour (in fdt.c) depending if CONFIG_ATAGS is enabled or
not. Note that at the time (2012) the above was added, the DT code
only supported CONFIG_CMDLINE and CONFIG_CMDLINE_FORCE.
CONFIG_CMDLINE_EXTEND was only added in 2016. And that has different
behavior for ATAGS vs. DT. In summary, it's a mess. We should drop the
depends either before this patch or just as part of this patch IMO.
I'd go with the latter given CONFIG_ATAGS is default y and enabled for
common configs. Without that, it looks like CONFIG_CMDLINE disappears
from menuconfig for at91_dt_defconfig.

Also, I think this code should be refactored a bit to eliminate
default_command_line. Instead, we should just save a pointer to the
ATAGS command line string, and then call cmdline_build here instead of
doing the extra copy:

        /* parse_early_param needs a boot_command_line */
        strlcpy(boot_command_line, from, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
