This is really nice and will allow us to drop some code both from the
livecd boot path and the installer, both of which read things
from /proc/cmdline and drop them into modprobe.conf if relevant
Yeah, this is what we were talking about on IRC the other day and then
Dan happened to randomly send my way - I tried forwarding the patch the
