In DownloadManager.java we should check the value of KernelDownloadUrl from registry in startBackgroundDownloadWithBroker method.  Also, the order of checking for bundles download location override should be as follows:
kernel.download.url system property
KernelDownloadUrl registry key

EVALUATION command line parameter for the download url should take over the registry key setting for the download url.
