[Buildroot] How to login automatically without typing root in buildroot x86 64 QEMU?

If I do:

    git clone git://git.buildroot.net/buildroot
    cd buildroot
    git checkout 2016.05
    make qemu_x86_defconfig
    make BR2_JLEVEL=2
    qemu-system-x86_64 -M pc -kernel output/images/bzImage -drive
file=output/images/rootfs.ext2,if=virtio,format=raw -append root=/dev/vda
-net nic,model=virtio -net user

I have to type `root` into QEMU before I can use the shell.

How to configure buildroot to skip that and login directly?

Tested on Ubuntu 16.04.
