In order to scale to large clusters, one must have flexible and
policy-free software. Right now Xen has a certain policy hard-coded
in it: namely, that the firmware-supplied bootargs always take
precedence over the builtin bootargs with no option to change. This
patch is three lines of code, makes Xen more flexible, removes a
hard-coded policy, and solves a real-world problem. Seen in that light,
I hope you will reconsider your objection.
