This is coming out of parse_args, which dumps '\0's into the command_line as it rips it apart. We now only have one copy of the command line (in x86_64) instead of two, so we now expose this trashed copy in /proc/cmdline.

It seems that the command line on x86_64 is being truncated during boot:in mm right?Will try and track it down.Don't bother, it is likely "early-param" (the patch from
hell). I'll investigate.
Are you sure it's a regression? 2.6.17 does the same
and we always had that 255 character limit (I tried to increase it once, but it broke some old lilo setups)
i386 should be the same btw.
I don't see this in my version; so it's likely fixed already. I did quite
a lot of changes on this patch already.
