-	  For most systems, it is firmware or second stage bootloader that
-	  by default specifies the kernel command line options.  However,
-	  it might be necessary or advantageous to either override the
-	  default kernel command line or add a few extra options to it.
-	  For such cases, this option allows you to hardcode your own
-	  command line options directly into the kernel.  For that, you
-	  should choose 'Y' here, and fill in the extra boot arguments
-	  The built-in options will be concatenated to the default command
-	  line if CMDLINE_OVERRIDE is set to 'N'. Otherwise, the default
-	  command line will be ignored and replaced by the built-in string.
-	  Most MIPS systems will normally expect 'N' here and rely upon
-	  the command line from the firmware or the second-stage bootloader.

-	  On some platforms, there is currently no way for the boot loader to
-	  pass arguments to the kernel.  For these platforms, and for the cases
-	  when you want to add some extra options to the command line or ignore
-	  the default command line, you can supply some command-line options at
-	  build time by entering them here.  In other cases you can specify
-	  kernel args so that you don't have to set them up in board prom
-	  initialization routines.
-	  For more information, see the CMDLINE_BOOL and CMDLINE_OVERRIDE
-	  options.

-	help
-	  By setting this option to 'Y' you will have your kernel ignore
-	  command line arguments from firmware or second stage bootloader.
-	  Instead, the built-in command line will be used exclusively.
-	  Normally, you will choose 'N' here.
