What do you mean by a "symbol resolution problem", exactly?  Note that
the "mount" command used on mkinitrd is a builtin of the tiny "nash"
shell, not the full mount binary, so it probably won't deal with those
options.  You'll need to copy the full mount bin into the initrd to
get that, or edit nash (if you copy mount, you might want first to
rebuild it statically, else suddenly you need libc.so on initrd too.)

Yes, all ext3 kernels ever have been.

No.
