I still maintain that this patch has the wrong priority in case more than one set of arguments are provided.

But you still haven't answered how that lets you work around firmware
that passes parameters you don't like.

That a fairly unique problem, and is most likely in a minority application. For that case a CONFIG option to ignore the firmware-provided command line would make sense. I do not believe it should be the only option or even the default.

It would be particularly good if this could be standardized across architectures, which is another reason to do it right.
