init: fix read-write root mount
If mount flags don't have MS_RDONLY, iso9660 returns EACCES without actually checking if it's an iso image. This tricks mount_block_root() into retrying with MS_RDONLY. This results in a read-only root despite the "rw" boot parameter if the actual filesystem was checked after iso9660. I believe the behavior of iso9660 is okay, while that of mount_block_root() is not. It should rather try all types without MS_RDONLY and only then retry with MS_RDONLY. This change also makes the code more robust against the case when EACCES is returned despite MS_RDONLY, which would've resulted in a lockup.
