Description YangKun 2008-06-10 04:54:36 EDT
In the INFO test(hts-5.2-14), checking for boot parameters is added into the end
of the "checkKernel" method. which means, if the kernel is tainted, this method
will return "false" immediately, and the boot parameter checking will be
skipped. This is bad for reviewing. E.g., for those laptops which ships with
ipw3945/4965 wireless NIC and for those machines which uses 3rd party drivers,
we(or the hwcert catalog) can never get the boot parameters from the INFO's
output.log directly.

Can we re-schedule the boot parameter checking before checking the kernel in the
"checkKernel" method or add a new "checkBootParameter" method ?
