oh, actually.  we already (can) have "soft root".  by marking
something as auto-configure, and booting from it.

what we want to change from what the past has been is to enable
the auto-configured raids to be used as root when booted from,
without them being marked -A root.  we should still keep the
current -A root semantics, and then people can stop using -A
root when they don't need to force it, and just use -A yes.
