Actually, sparc kernel parses boot arguments and sets "boothowto" itself and
it does it in bootpath_build(), i.e. in cpu_configure(), i.e. *after*
configure() tests for RB_USERCONF.
yes, i know. it doesn't use BOOT_FLAGS() like (nearly?) every
other port does. it should, however, because there are like
7 or 8 default handled flags in BOOT_FLAGS() and sparc only does
3 (-s, -d and -a.)
