We should really have some documentation on how to create a minimal initramfs
that mounts /usr (if we don't already, I haven't looked).  I've never needed
one until now and don't have the foggiest idea how it's done.  I can't be the
only one.

Also, the handbook still endorses having a separate partition for /usr and
includes it in the example setup.  This should be changed now, not when
stabilization time comes.
