Added a menu to choose how the built-in command line will be
used and CMDLINE_EXTEND for compatibility with FDT code.

v2: Improved help messages, removed references to bootloader
and made them more descriptive. I also asked help from a
friend who's a language expert just in case.

v3: This time used the corrected text

Thanks, but I still don't like the names of the options.  I've just gone ahead 
and sent a v4, let me know if that looks OK to you -- that's what I was trying 
to say the first time.
