Just an idea: what about defining CMDLINE as a pattern where e.g. "$$" or "%%"
is replaced by the boot loader command line?

Then you can formulate replace, prepend, append, prepend+append with a single
CONFIG setting.

It may be a little more complex in code (scanning for the pattern and replacing
it and take care to temporary memory) but IMHO it could be worth to consider.
