param: hand arguments after -- straight to init
The kernel passes any args it doesn't need through to init, except it assumes anything containing '.' belongs to the kernel (for a module). This change means all users can clearly distinguish which arguments are for init. For example, the kernel uses debug ("dee-bug") to mean log everything to the console, where systemd uses the debug from the Scandinavian "day-boog" meaning "fail to boot". If a future versions uses argv[] instead of reading /proc/cmdline, this confusion will be avoided. eg: test 'FOO="this is --foo"' -- 'systemd.debug="true true true"' Gives: argv[0] = '/debug-init' argv[1] = 'test' argv[2] = 'systemd.debug=true true true' envp[0] = 'HOME=/' envp[1] = 'TERM=linux' envp[2] = 'FOO=this is --foo' Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
