    Why ? Just pick a boot parameter name for the rootfs label and let initrd
    handle it. If the label isn't found, it can always fall back to something

    By the way, somebody said that not all file systems support volume labels.
    That's true, but we can always create a naming convention for a regular
    file containing the volume label, e.g. <mount>/.volume_label or even
    <mount>/VOLUME.LBL ;-), so at least all the usual r/w disk devices could
    be handled.
