Nice series in general. I've had passing desire to do this every time
I run into the command line code.

The DT handling of the command line is generic across architectures.
The current design is working around that the kernel command line code
is not that way. I think we can take this a bit further by making the
generic DT code add the command line string directly rather than
relying on the arch to do that. Then we can remove all command line
handling from the arch code. I would also look at whether we can make
boot_command_line static rather than directly accessed. We might have
to leave it public for now, but could treat it as static for generic
cmdline case.
