Subject[PATCH] init: Introduce rootdir bootparm to select which dir to sys_chroot
Date

This patch introduces a rootdir kernel boot parameter, which specifies the
path to the kernel sys_chroot boot dir.

This is useful for systems that have more than one distribution installed on
the same fs/partition.
