I looked at this a while back. I'm not sure this behavior can be changed
without breaking some MIPS platforms that could be relying on the
current behavior. But trying to make sense of the MIPS code is a
challenge and they have some other issues in this area.
Can't this be fixed by making /chosen manditory? I'd expect ultimately
you are always going to need it.
I'd rather not resort to making this per arch. There's also some effort
to consolidate cmd line handling.
