  In the new order of things dictated by nmount(2), a read-only mount
  is to be requested via a "ro" option.  At the same time, MNT_RDONLY
  is gradually becoming an indicator of the current state of the FS
  instead of a command flag.  Today passing MNT_RDONLY alone to the
  kernel's mount machinery will lead to various glitches.  (See the
  PRs for examples.)
  Therefore mount the root FS with a "ro" option instead of the
  MNT_RDONLY flag.  (Note that MNT_RDONLY still is added to the mount
  flags internally, by vfs_donmount(), if "ro" was specified.)
  To be able to pass "ro" cleanly to kernel_vmount(), teach the latter
  function to accept options with NULL values.
  Also correct the comment explaining how mount_arg() handles length
  of -1.
