    I _really_ doubt it. /init calling mount(2) - sure, but mount(8)?
    Not really.

    Assuming that it moves to userland, which is non-obvious. Going other
    way (i.e. clean kernel API for parsing _and_ changing partitioning)
    might be better. Current mechanisms for notifying kernel about partition
    table changes are really gross.

    nfsroot mounting (socket/sendto/recvfrom/open/close/read/write/malloc/free/
    snprintf/memcpy/strlen/mount).

    _Kernel_ has no special-casing of that kind.
