Sometime recently it seems to have become possible to disable the
whole block device subsystem.
Though in my tests I can't quit build with it disabled.
Anyway, for an embedded device this might be appealing.
how does this interact with initramfs and flash ?
Can I boot an initramfs kernel without a block device ?
Can I write a filesystem driver for a flash device that does not
require a block device ?
Are their any examples of something even close ?
