IMO, the bare minimum: "console=ttyS0,115200n8 root=/dev/ram ip=off" or
even nothing at all and just let the user do setenv as required for there
case, since it's typically one of the first things most folks will do
anyway, so why guess, leave it NULL.

I'ld personally kill off all the hardcoded network config vars _and_ the
CONFIG_BOOTFILE def too, since that's what we have bootp/dhcp for after
