Subject[linux-next v2] rootfs: rootflags take effect when mount rootfs
Date
The kernel root filesystem may use the rootflags parameters
when mount, especially for tmpfs, to setup a variety of features.

For example:
1. Add 'rootflags=huge=always' to boot args.
2. When the OS bootup:
rootfs on / type rootfs (..., huge=always)
Then we can get the hugepage performance improvement of tmpfs.

Usage:
