Did you change the kernel configuration (say, the CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL
and CONFIG_CMDLINE settings), or the device tree definition?

If yes, then check the changes.

If not, then you should be able to run git bisect on the kernel to
find out which commit caused the change in behaviour.

Your statement "the command line is not received by  the  kernel"  is
actually  wrong  - the kernel _does_ receive a command line, but it's
not what you want.
