Subject[patch 1/22] Add __early_param for all arches
From
Date

[ CC'ing of arch maintainers where I've made non-trivial changes ]
Hello. The following is outcome of talking with David Woodhouse about
the need in various parts of the kernel to parse the command line very
early and set some options based on what we read. The result is
__early_param("arg", fn) based very heavily on the macro of the same name
in the arm kernel. The following is the core of these changes, adding the
macro, struct and externs to <linux/init.h>, the parser to init/main.c
and converting console= to this format. As a follow on to this thread are
patches against all arches (vs 2.6.5-rc2) to use the global define of
saved_command_line, add the appropriate bits to
arch/$(ARCH)/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S and in some cases, convert params
from the old arch-specific variant to the new __early_param way.
