Cool. +1 from me then.

I had a look at the kernel sources, the default root mount options is
"MS_RDONLY  | MS_SILENT". Should we be passing "silent" as well to
stay compatible? I don't know what the downside would be, except that
there does not appear to be a way to switch back to "loud" from the
kernel commandline.
