The specific mechanism isn't the hideous part. The hideous part is the
suggestion that the rootfs type be somehow hardcoded into a new
(debian-specific) mechanism in the initrd. That's not the current case,
nor should it be.  If that's not what that bug report was mean to
suggest, and the only point of the bug report was to switch from change
root to pivot_root, I don't understand how it's at all relevant to the
ext3 problem.
