The real intention of CONFIG_CMD_FORCE was hotplug. Take a device with a 
bootloader wich loads the kernel from the first partition of a 
changeable media (e.g. usb-hd).
Without that option you would have to use the same command line for all 

But I find it also very handy for rescue-kernels and such.
