command: Let builtin command take precedence
In theory we can overwrite a builtin command with a script. However, I don't know a single case where this has been done. Scripts are often more unflexible than commands so it's unlikely that a script can extend the functionality of a builtin command. Moreover, the internal command is no longer accessible once it's overwritten by a script. Invert this logic so that a builtin command can overwrite an existing script. This will help when the 'boot' script is converted to a builting command. Then with old environments the builtin command will be used instead of the script. Signed-off-by: Sascha Hauer <>
