From: Rafał Miłecki <rafal@milecki.pl>

This adds support for "linux,rootfs" binding that is used to mark flash
partition containing rootfs. It's useful for devices using device tree
that don't have bootloader passing root info in cmdline.

Signed-off-by: Rafał Miłecki <rafal@milecki.pl>
V2: Use "linux,rootfs" as more accurate. Thanks Rob.
V3: Add IS_BUILTIN(CONFIG_MTD) check to avoid
    ERROR: modpost: "ROOT_DEV" [drivers/mtd/mtd.ko] undefined!
