Prepboot still ha to be upgraded to take the arguments from the NVRAM. If
you wnat to give it a try, it's not that complex,  just that I never fond
the time to do it. It also still ignores the config option. Sorry...

Nevertheless for the root device option, the right way to do it would be
to use the same scheme as the Intel port. You can type make zImage
ROOTDEV=/dev/sda2 for example. By default, it will automagically (on
Intel pc) take the current root device which is very convenient.
