[oe] [RFC] kexecboot: passing extra cmdline arguments

The new linux-kexecboot package provides a brand new 'second stage bootloader'
thus allowing to boot from different media (SD, nand,...).
The problem I see whit it, is that the kexec'ed kernel looks for cmdline in
/boot/kernel-cmdline, but that cmdline is statically compiled at build time and
ignores the 'mtdparts=' bootarg.
The patch attached to oebug 4520 provides a way to selectively filter
the cmdline of the
first kernel (coming from bootloader) and pass it to the new kernel.
Comments and corrections are welcome!
