Bug#880152: flash-kernel: please echo cmdline before starting the kernel

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.87
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if you could echo kernel cmdline before passing control.
Currently there's:
    echo "Booting Debian from ${devtype} ${devnum}:${partition}..."
I can edit the bootscript myself, but having this by default would help
anyone who sees:

Found U-Boot script /boot.scr

   Loading Device Tree to 4fab8000, end 4fac86c6 ... OK

Starting kernel ...

then nothing.

(This particular board uses bootscript.odroid, but this extra line can't
hurt elsewhere.)
