    block: change config option name for cmdline partition parsing · 080506ad
    Paul Gortmaker authored
    Recently commit bab55417 ("block: support embedded device command
    line partition") introduced CONFIG_CMDLINE_PARSER.  However, that name
    is too generic and sounds like it enables/disables generic kernel boot
    arg processing, when it really is block specific.
    Before this option becomes a part of a full/final release, add the BLK_
    prefix to it so that it is clear in absence of any other context that it
    is block specific.
    In addition, fix up the following less critical items:
     - help text was not really at all helpful.
     - index file for Documentation was not updated
     - add the new arg to Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt
     - clarify wording in source comments
