When loading an app with the "run" console, command line parameters
work when using the TFTP file provider but not with bmodfs. I had a
look at the code and it was simple to fix: in
l4/pkg/generic_fprov/examples/bmodfs/dm.c, bmodfs compares the given
filename _with_ its parameters to the loaded filenames _without_ their
parameters. I've attached the patch -- I hope it can be of some use.
