Exact quote: "The kernel's behavior to the end user is 100% unchanged."

You appear to be unaware of early userspace. Moving code out of the
kernel does _not_ mean eliminating that code completely. I was hoping
it was obvious that it is impossible to eliminate the tasks that
do_mounts.c performs -- otherwise a Linux system would never have a root
filesystem mounted.

Being unaware of early userspace implies that you are not familiar with
initramfs.
Which implies you wish you merge your own code in place of something you
do not understand.
