[uClinux-dev] finding the root device

I am running mainline Linux on the Freescale/Axiom M5234BCC with uboot
2011.09-01111-g0562219 and have been carrying along a patch from the
uClinux-dist, like shown below for v3.2.9.

I create a image by concatenating the kernel with a romfs, and I boot
it by loading over tftp and jumping to the image with the uboot 'go'
command.

My question: Is there a way to pass the kernel command line from uboot
to specify the root device, instead of using this patch?

Thanks,
Richard
