    Which is not a problem with the (b) variant where the bootloader
    provided command line replaces the compiled in one. It does not change
    your habit of not setting up a commandline - or an empty one.

    This would also ensure compability with grub and friends, which I
    consider as a real strong argument to avoid breakage all over the place.
