[PATCH] ask users to provide /proc/cmdline when REPORTING-BUGS

From: Jesper Juhl
Date: Mon Oct 10 2005 - 15:49:14 EST

The kernel commandline a user uses with his kernel is useful info.
Time and time again I see mails on lkml asking users if they used some
commandline option or another when booting the kernel. So it seems to
me that it would be useful if people who took the time to read
REPORTING-BUGS would by default include that info with their bug reports.
