core: initial work on path-based cwd selection
Work on picking the initial cwd by storing a path instead of by storing an inode number. This should be both more general (in the sense of supporting filesystems in a generic way) as well as conceptually cleaner. The code doesn't work yet, but this at least provides support for the extlinux installer to store its subpath into the installed image. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
