    That's a difference between Fedora's initrd and Debian/Ubuntu's
    initramfs-tools then. We do respect the mount options in fstab for the
    root partition when root is mounted from the initrd:

    $ cat /etc/fstab | grep " / "
    /dev/mapper/main-root / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

    $ mount | grep " / "
    /dev/mapper/main-root on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro)

    $ cat /proc/cmdline
    root=/dev/mapper/main-root ro vga=791 quiet
