Please explain more in details how each powerpc option is replaced by 
one of the generic options.

I don't think it is worth an implementation as complex as in the 
previous patch just for the above line.
Could easily define the temporary buffer in this file directely, then 
just locally do:

strlcpy(temp_buff, CONFIG_CMDLINE_PREPEND, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
strlcat(temp_buff, boot_command_line, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
strlcat(temp_buff, CONFIG_CMDLINE_APPEND, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);
strlcpy(boot_command_line, temp_buff, COMMAND_LINE_SIZE);

You don't need something as complex as what your generic code does for 
that. It could be done with the following simple line:

strlcpy(prom_cmd_line, CONFIG_CMDLINE_PREPEND " " CONFIG_CMDLINE_APPEND, 
sizeof(prom_cmd_line));

The above is a big issue. In the scope of KASAN implementation, we are 
getting rid of generic string functions from prom_init because they are 
KASAN instrumented and that's far too early for prom_init. See series 
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linuxppc-dev/list/?series=94949 and 
especially patch [v9,03/11] powerpc/prom_init: don't use string 
functions from lib/
