This patch introduces CONFIG_CMDLINE_PARSE option which conditionally compiles
the support for parsing kernel command line arguments. The corresponding
functions that actually do the parsing will be compiled out. 

This is used when no parameters will be specified neither at compile time nor at
boot time.

Bloat-o-meter output (compared to the preivous version in which builtin cmdline
was also set to 'Y'):
