Currently mkinitcpio takes (only) the boot param "fstype" instead of "rootfstype" as documented in kernel docs. I am not sure if it's documented in mkinitcpio but I wonder if it's necessary to make such a difference, since it takes rootflags, which is documented in kernel docs as well.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon
