Oh, that's simple, separate-/usr-without-initramfs will not work and will not be supported :) Again, the fact that it works for some people today is pure luck, and odds are, it really isn't, but it's really hard to determine this given that the init system they are using doesn't provide a good feedback loop for this type of thing. Hence, it is not supported. thanks, greg k-h
