Re: get rid of MEMORY_DISK_IS_ROOT?

(Yet another pulp fuctions and pipe dreams)
Instantiate (materialize) at md creation from particular backing store, say,
from kernel data section (INSTALL kernel we are using), from "special
storage" like a section of bare NAND and/or NOR, even from HTTP down
loading during the booting stage. If we allow the md change snapshot'ed
away to backing store given any moment, that'd be a knockdown win over
