Subject[PATCH] init: Support mounting devices from kernel command line
Date
This patch adds support to mounting devices using a kernel parameter.

Such feature is usefull for virtual guests. It allows easily automating
mounts without having to change the base image (which can be read-only).

In /tools/kvm we are interested in such feature to allow us to automatically
mount user home directory using virtio-9p from the host to the guest
filesystem under '/hostfs'.
