A lot of the issues here is that the initramfs / do_mount code
is written as if it was user space code, but in kernel space. E.g.
using file desriptors etc. I think doing one or a few patches
before this series to sort this out would really reduce the scope
of work and be the right thing. For any additional minor cleanups
I agree that it might make sense to postpone them.
