What's wrong with:
  * having an "early mounts" list file
  * having an "early modules" list file
  * init system in early boot (e.g., OpenRC in init.sh) loading "early
modules" and mounting "early mounts" from /etc/fstab

This will solve the issue with most non-complex (i.e., no raid or
encryption) initramfs-less setups, without requiring that users
migrate to initramfs (e.g., after dealing with genkernel-generated
scripts for a long time, I wouldn't touch it with a pointed stick
anymore). The relevant files can be also generated automatically
during an upgrade (empty "early modules" and empty or /usr-only "early
mounts", depending on /etc/fstab contents).
