I've confirmed that console=tty is no longer necessary as of Linux


Perhaps no_auto_cmd is also a historical artifact.  Robert, do you
happen to know?

Fixed the latter, although PMON will only auto-boot if boot.cfg is on
the first partition and so the partitioner complains if that isn't the
case.  But I suppose you might want some kind of multi-boot setup
whereby you use 'bl' to load different boot.cfg files.  Or something.
Anyway, it was easy enough to support. :-)
