    The idea was to allow putting something like "%s" in the built-in
    command line and expanding that with the provided command line. This
    allows you to append/prepend/ignore the provided command line as you

    This is a fair bit more complicated than what the existing
    implementations of CONFIG_CMDLINE are doing and details like
    early_cmdline handling don't help matters. Haven't yet come up with an
    implementation I'm happy with.

    Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
