Commit Message

Daniel Walker March 9, 2021, 12:02 a.m. UTC
This code allows architectures to use a generic builtin command line.
The state of the builtin command line options across architecture is
diverse. On x86 and mips they have pretty much the same code and the
code prepends the builtin command line onto the boot loader provided
one. On powerpc there is only a builtin override and nothing else.

The code in this commit unifies the code into a generic
header file under the CONFIG_GENERIC_CMDLINE option. When this
option is enabled the architecture can call the cmdline_add_builtin()
to add the builtin command line.

Same comment as in v1: The above is not correct for powerpc.

This test can probably be avoided. if CONFIG_CMDLINE_APPEND is empty, it will add a space at the end 
of dest, that's harmless.

Same. Keep it simple. Provide tmp all the time, have only one logic.

No need to micro-optimise this, you can provide cmdline_tmp_space all the time and only keep on leg 
of the if/elseif

Argh ! So the same function as different semantics whether CONFIG_CMDLINE_OVERRIDE and/or 
CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL is selected ? It means the architecture will have to know it as well in order to 
call it right ? That looks like micro-optimisation, I think it is not worth it.

CONFIG_CMDLINE doesn't exist.

I think it would be better to have CMDLINE_APPEND and CMDLINE_PREPENT defined at all time, and not 
leak CMDLINE_BOOL into code. It should just be used here to unable user customisation of 
CMDLINE_APPEND, as follows:

config CMDLINE_APPEND
	string "Built-in kernel command string append" if CMDLINE_BOOL
	default ""

Same comment as for CMDLINE_APPEND

In powerpc, by default, when a CMDLINE is provided, it is used only if the bootloader doesn't 
provide a command line. I can't see how I can do that here.
