Subject[PATCH] init: add rootopts=%d for rootfs mount flags
Date
Add the rootopts command line parameter to specify mount flags for the
root filesystem.

The kernel provides the rootflags parameter to specify filesystem
dependent options when mouting the root filesystem but did not provide
any way to set the filesystem independent flags.

This is not an issue on systems using an initrd because on these
systems, the rootflags parameter is passed to the /sbin/mount binary
which understands filesystem independent flags in the option string,
such as noatime (MS_NOATIME) or nodev (MS_NODEV).
