It's optional.

I -STILL- can't figure out why the autoprober doesn't just look in
/proc/mounts to figure out who and what our root device and filesystem are.

I need to set up a system that boots to an initrd and puts the root device
lives on a samba server just to confuse eric's autoprober. Hmmm... I wonder
if that would work? :)
