When configuring the kernel i found out that this is actually set as the 
internal CMDLINE.

Also (other hint), the kernel debugging options in the kernel are set.

I compiled a kernel today and i can boot it, it does not boot using the 
standard scripts that came with the Angstroem distro.

When interrupting standard boot and giving:

mmc init
mmc rescan 0
bootm 0x82000000

Then the kernel starts to boot.

Thanks for your hints,
