Hongxu Jia - March 28, 2014, 9:43 a.m.
From: Konrad Scherer <Konrad.Scherer@windriver.com>

Add additional parameter 'SYSLINUX_KERNEL_ARGS' in order to allow
for specific kernel parameters to be set when using syslinux.

The extra kernel parameters are added to btype[1] and then written out
as part of the APPEND field.
