 14           This option enables special console drivers which allow the kernel
 15           to print messages very early in the bootup process.
 17           This is useful for kernel debugging when your machine crashes very
 18           early before the console code is initialized. For normal operation,
 19           it is not recommended because it looks ugly on some machines and
 20           doesn't cooperate with an X server. You should normally say N here,
 21           unless you want to debug such a crash.

 29           If you say Y here, it will be possible to use a 8250/16550 serial
 30           port as the boot console.

 38         help
 39           For most systems, it is firmware or second stage bootloader that
 40           by default specifies the kernel command line options.  However,
 41           it might be necessary or advantageous to either override the
 42           default kernel command line or add a few extra options to it.
 43           For such cases, this option allows you to hardcode your own
 44           command line options directly into the kernel.  For that, you
 45           should choose 'Y' here, and fill in the extra boot arguments
 46           in CONFIG_CMDLINE.
 48           The built-in options will be concatenated to the default command
 49           line if CMDLINE_OVERRIDE is set to 'N'. Otherwise, the default
 50           command line will be ignored and replaced by the built-in string.
 52           Most MIPS systems will normally expect 'N' here and rely upon
 53           the command line from the firmware or the second-stage bootloader.
 55 config CMDLINE

 59         help
 60           On some platforms, there is currently no way for the boot loader to
 61           pass arguments to the kernel.  For these platforms, and for the cases
 62           when you want to add some extra options to the command line or ignore
 63           the default command line, you can supply some command-line options at
 64           build time by entering them here.  In other cases you can specify
 65           kernel args so that you don't have to set them up in board prom
 66           initialization routines.
 68           For more information, see the CMDLINE_BOOL and CMDLINE_OVERRIDE
 69           options.

 74         depends on CMDLINE_BOOL
 75         help
 76           By setting this option to 'Y' you will have your kernel ignore
 77           command line arguments from firmware or second stage bootloader.
 78           Instead, the built-in command line will be used exclusively.
 80           Normally, you will choose 'N' here.

 93         help
 94           If you say Y here, some debugging macros will do run-time checking.
 95           If you say N here, those macros will mostly turn to no-ops.  See
 96           arch/mips/include/asm/debug.h for debugging macros.
 97           If unsure, say N.

104           If you want to add compressed kernel support to a new board, and the
105           board supports uart16550 compatible serial port, please select
106           SYS_SUPPORTS_ZBOOT_UART16550 for your board and enable this option to
107           debug it.
109           If your board doesn't support uart16550 compatible serial port, you
110           can try to select SYS_SUPPORTS_ZBOOT and use the other methods to
111           debug it. for example, add a new serial port support just as
112           arch/mips/boot/compressed/uart-16550.c does.
114           After the compressed kernel support works, please disable this option
115           to reduce the kernel image size and speed up the booting procedure a
116           little.
118 config SPINLOCK_TEST
