Thing is it runs before the real init[1] so if we are using a separate /usr 
partition on LVM, will it still work? I'd have thought not, since we need

gladly be told different.

(/usr on lvm was the example given in the Council discussion, and has been 
mentioned in docs, but I'd imagine same applies to /usr on mdadm, if not
