Thing is it runs before the real init so if we are using a separate /usr
partition on LVM, will it still work? I'd have thought not, since we need
the device-mapper service and there's /etc/lvm.conf to consider, but I'll

(/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
