Most architectures have similar boot command line manipulation
options. This patchs adds the definition in init/Kconfig, gated by
CONFIG_HAVE_CMDLINE that the architectures can select to use them.

CONFIG_CMDLINE_EXTEND is understood differently by architectures.
For some of them it appends built-in CMDLINE to bootloader provided
line. For others it appends the bootloader provided CMDLINE to the
built-in one.
To avoid confusion, this commit brings to different options:
- CONFIG_CMDLINE_APPEND to append the built-in CMDLINE to the
bootloader line.
- CONFIG_CMDLINE_PREPEND to prepend the built-in CMDLINE in front of
the bootloader line.

For compatibility with existing architecture which uses CONFIG_OF, as
OF has already been converted to generic cmdline, we keep
CONFIG_CMDLINE_EXTEND as a synonym to CONFIG_CMDLINE_APPEND until
arm, powerpc, riscv and sh architectures have been converted.

A few differences are identified and will have to be taken
into account when converting the architecture to generic cmdline:
- riscv has CMDLINE_FALLBACK instead of CMDLINE_FROM_BOOTLOADER
- Some architectures are using CONFIG_CMDLINE_OVERRIDE or
CONFIG_CMDLINE_OVERWRITE instead of CONFIG_CMDLINE_FORCE.

v3:
- Comments from Will.
- Remove CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL. Using CONFIG_CMDLINE != "" instead, like arm and powerpc.
- Changed EXTEND to APPEND. Keep EXTEND for backward compatibility.
