That's a good idea for most cases, I think, if we can get that information
without too much difficulty (the booter could pass it in in the mac68k
case, but I don't know about other ports).

It does fail if you've loaded the kernel off an alternate location
(MacOS, bootp/tftp/bootparam server, tape, etc).
