I found it useful to mount ext3 root in data=writeback in initrd image
(kernel forbids later change when remounting ro -> rw).

nash - enhanced version of mount, that allows passing fs options
added (via different patch) to mkinitrd 3.3.11 -- thanks
This is related I think?
The mount command in nash (3.5.8) doesn't
like the noauto option (which was in my fstab),
causing the mount to fail.
I guess this is because the standard mount
command strips this before sending to ext2?
Maybe mkinitrd is the correct place to strip
nash should only include mount lines for your root partition. this means that
you have a root partition (/) entry in /etc/fstab that has a noauto option?
Could you attach your fstab?
I removed the noauto to get around the problem,
but from a logical point of view it should
handle the same things as ordinary mount does IMHO.
(I had marked all filesystems as noauto that
won't/shouldn't be mounted by a `mount -a`
in my startup scripts).
