Hi,

Redboot partitioning (used by mtd devices) provides devices with names like
"mtd:foo". Unfortunately, when booting with root=mtd:foo, the "*:*" check in
parse_numeric is matched and things break (the code expects major:minor
numbers). This patch fixes that by explicitly checking for something that
starts with a number.
