I don't know the linux booting protocol in details but it looks like you patch replaces one arbitrary limit (256) by another (4096). Is there any way of avoiding any arbitrary limit at all wothout modyfiing boot protocol?

I just noticed, that the pc linux loader (loader/i386/pc/linux.c) always
truncates the kernel command line to less than 256 characters.
Well since I needed a longer command line, I fixed this problem.

I found a patch on this list from last year ( ),
which apparently was lost in some other discussion.
I didn't use it, because I think my version works better with older kernels.

I tested this on my machine and it worked without a problem with a
2.6.27 kernel.

It would be great if you could add this (or something like it), so I can
switch to the official version again.

Thanks and Regards,
