Description

Motivation

#40670 showed that typing in the bootloader screen can impede the robustness. Using a "info-file" might be more robust.

Further information

Syntax of info file:

  • Each parameter goes in one line.
  • Key and value are separated by colon plus white space ': '.

Sample:

ssh: 1
sshpassword: nots3cr3t

Usage from bootloader

info=http://$WORKER_IP/files/info

so, to solve #39857 I have tried this solution for this specific case in this Pull request
and it worked like a charm. So I would be totally in for following the idea of implementing this feature to reduce mistyped/wrongly configured kernel command lines with too many different potential fallouts on our testing

Move to new QSF-u PO after I moved to the "tools"-team. I mainly checked the subject line so in individual instances you might not agree to take it over completely into QSF-u. Feel free to discuss with me or reassign to me or someone else in this case. Thanks.

No time to work on this :( (as employee)

Since it is low prio, assigning to my-free-time-self.

Please, unassign if you consider that it has to be worked on by QE-Core.
