system: add help entry to "none" init system
It can be a little bit misleading to have no init system... Add a comment that states the user has to provide his own init system, either via a package or a rootfs overlay. It is expected that such a user will know what to provide, so we don't really need to specify that it should be /init or /sbin/init or any arbitrary executable pointed to by the kernel command line "init=..." or anything else...
