Dear reader ,

My Updated image cannot auto mount the overlay for some reason.
[   10.587382] mount_root: no usable overlay filesystem found, using
tmpfs overlay

Nevertheless the overall detection seems fine :

[    1.728207] mtd: device 9 (rootfs) set to be root filesystem
[    1.732987] 1 squashfs-split partitions found on MTD device rootfs
[    1.738420] 0x000000c00000-0x000001b80000 : "rootfs_data"

# tail -1 /proc/mtd
mtd10: 00f80000 00010000 "rootfs_data"

I probably did not initiliaze the rootfs_data partition.

Can someone point out where it is explained or how to test that ?
