aha, okay. so ramfs/inode.c defines init_rootfs, which in fact *is*
absolutely needed by the kernel in fs/namespace.c

but then Configure.help is missleading, and RAMFS should not be a CONFIG_
option anyway.

: Simple RAM-based file system support
: CONFIG_RAMFS
: Ramfs is a file system which keeps all files in RAM. It allows
: read and write access.
:
: It is more of an programming example than a usable file system.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
