Chris & Lars,
Ok, well, once again I'm confused...
Are we talking about the same command line arguments?

At the time the rtems application is started up, the boot loader
is the actively running program on the system; hence, it must
take in the command line arguments and put them somewhere for
the rtems application to retrieve.

How can this be done in a boot-loader-independent way?
