Description bastiaan 2005-08-22 10:41:18 EDT
Description of problem: 
unlike nash 4.x, nash 3.5.x does not support using environment variables in its
scripts. Having support for environment vars would make it much easier to pass
kernel parameters to commands invoked in linuxrc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
The attached patch is simply taken from nash 4.x code.
