You are right, there is a mistake in our implementation, thank you for
your observation. This bug can be easily fixed in 2 ways.
First - modify mips-specific code adding if statement with
processing bootloader cmdline:
------------------------------8<-----------------------------------

diff --git a/arch/mips/kernel/setup.c b/arch/mips/kernel/setup.c
index 60638dd..7d11ef5 100644
--- a/arch/mips/kernel/setup.c
+++ b/arch/mips/kernel/setup.c
@@ -856,7 +856,11 @@ static void __init arch_mem_init(char **cmdline_p)
pr_info("Determined physical RAM map:\n");
print_memory_map();

- cmdline_add_builtin(boot_command_line, arcs_cmdline, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
+ if (arcs_cmdline[0]) {
+ strlcat(boot_command_line, " ", COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
+ strlcat(boot_command_line, arcs_cmdline, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
+ }
+ cmdline_add_builtin(boot_command_line, NULL, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);

strlcpy(command_line, boot_command_line, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);

------------------------------8<-----------------------------------
This solution was tested under QEMU using malta emulation and it
works fine. Another way is to modify common code in
include/linux/cmdline.h, but I am not sure, which approach is better.

Yes, this generic command line implementation lacks some of the
features, existing in the current mips command line code, and we
are going to expand functionality of generic command line code to
correspond it, but it would be easier to initially merge this simple
implementation and then develop it step by step.

Thanks,
Maksym
