Systems that boot without a chosen node in the device tree should still
respect the command lines that are built into the kernel.  This patch
avoids bailing out of the command line argument parsing code when there
is no chosen node in the device tree.  This is necessary to boot
straight to a root file system (ie, without an initramfs)

The intent here is that the only functional change is to copy
CONFIG_CMDLINE into data if both of them are valid (ie, CONFIG_CMDLINE
is defined and data is non-null) on systems where there is no chosen
device tree node.  I don't actually know what the return values do so I
just preserved them.

Thanks to Trung and Moritz for finding the bug during our ELC hackathon
(and providing the first fix), and Michal for suggesting this fix (which
is cleaner than what I was doing).  I've given this very minimal
testing: it fixes the RISC-V bug (in conjunction with a patch to move
from COMMANDLINE_OVERRIDE to COMMANDLINE_FORCE), still works on systems
with and without the chosen node, and builds on ARM64.
