Subject[patch] dont force uclinux mtd map to be root dev
the cheesy uclinux mtd maps can be used for more than just the root device, so 
i think we should drop the forcing. also, i feel like this is a policy
decision that shouldnt be in the kernel in the first place. people who have
been lazy and boot with uclinux mtd maps and dont put root= into their
commandline can simply add the appropriate root= line either into their
bootloader or into the compiled in bootargs
