I did not test the BSPOPTS, sorry about that. I can take a look if it is 

I prefer using boot arguments and would like to see them used and the 
BSPOPT console options go away. I feel a single runtime binary that 
supports boot options is simpler than a complex mix of runtime and 
BSPOPTs variations. The only issue is the current documented examples 
are wrong.
