SubjectRe: [patch 1/5] Extended crashkernel command line

AFAIK it is the other way round: the lilo configuration-parameter
"append" appends the kernel parameters in the configuration to the
parameters given by the user on the kernel command line.

So the parameters set by the user during boot appear first on the
command line.

So perhaps something like this instead:

+ /* find crashkernel and use the first one if there are more */
+ p = strstr(p, "crashkernel=");
+ ck_cmdline = p;
