In openboot, we run into long command lines primarily when we do network
boot - the arguments to network devices (particularly for things like
iSCSI) can get absurdly long.
/pci at 340/pci at 1/pci at 0/network at 5:iscsi-target-ip=188.8.131.52,iscsi-target-name=iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:boot,host-ip=184.108.40.206,iscsi-port=3260,iscsi-lun=1,iscsi-partition=a,router-ip=220.127.116.11,subnet-mask=255.255.255.0
The above has an unusually short iscsi-target-name. Many iqn strings go
over 80 bytes by themselves.
