There was yet another attempt for consistent mmcblk numbering shot down
here just last weekend: http://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg501495.html
Given that there probably never will be a way to (reliably) pass the rootfs via
root=mmcblkxy, I can't take this patch. I sent a patch which pushes the
partuuid mechanism from the bootloader spec code to bootm which might
help to solve this problem here.
I applied this series without this patch. This provoked a little merge
conflict in the patch renaming the environment directory. Please check
the result in -next.
