If I understand you are proposing passing bbl (or other firmware) with the
-kernel flag, and then vmlinux (or another kernel) with the -initrd flag?
Wouldn't this result in losing the ability to pass a real init ramdisk to
Linux? It also seems to open the possibility for strange bugs/compatibility
issues later if firmware starts recognizing any "initrd" entries in the
device tree as kernel code to jump into.
I do wonder though how compatible the current design is with providing
default firmware for riscv in the future.

I can do this for v2.
