Bug#380004: changing FSTYPE

At the least please add the "export FSTYPE=" line to init there by
allowing local-premount scripts to adjust it if needed.
If you want to change a global variable from a script you can already do
so by writing the proper lines to /conf/param.conf from the premount
script. It will be sourced by the init script once your premount script
exits (see the cryptsetup initramfs script for an example).
And fstype will hopefully gain iso9660 detection support soon
