CONFIG_CMDLINE_OVERRIDE is probably more palatable to other architectures.

I'd be OK implementing it with an option, rather than a magic char.
I was trying to avoid adding too many options, since many kernel
developers prefer fewer options where possible.  But the magic
char makes the code less straightforward.

If we ever move towards supporting both prefix and suffice splicing (or
even complicated in-the-middle splicing), then the magic char is
easier to develop into that.  But so far, I can only come up with
reasonable cases for append and override, and I don't want to add
superfluous handling for non-existent use cases.

I think I agree, and the override option would make it easier to make generic.
