While Haiku doesn't use it (yet, but it will probably never be able to
load without a BIOS except with the gzipped kernel trick used on a
floppy image for CD booting), it'd be nice to have the -append option
args forwarded by the BIOS so one could still use -append regardless
the boot method used to pass options to the OS, in which case I'd add
support for them in the Haiku loader.
