init_functions: support arbitrary dotted cmdline arguments

classabbyamp requested to merge classabbyamp/mkinitcpio:arbitrary-kcl into master

This allows cmdline arguments of the format foo.bar to be accessible as environment variables. This could be useful for hooks that wish to namespace their cmdline arguments. For example, Void's live ISOs (currently using dracut, but maybe switching to mkinitcpio) would use this functionality to match the existing interface of live.<name> cmdline arguments that control live ISO behaviour.
